“Canons” by Cort Savage

This exhibition provides closure to Savage’s work from the past decade. The rubber band-based sculptures are a departure from the mixed media kinetic sculptures of his early years. They are inspired by his interests in contemporary philosophy, poetry, and quantum mechanics and began with the idea of taking something as insignificant as a rubber band and building something with greater impact.

Pieces such as Canons allude to Savage’s study in both figure sculpture and constructive sculpture. Three human skulls are wrapped in rubber bands and x-rays are linked to each sphere. “The X-ray suggests the integrity of the intellect while the rubber band sphere suggests the integrity of processes linked to physical process,” he explained. “Sometimes they support each other and sometimes they are pushing against each other.”
