Richard Rezac’s abstract sculptures quietly connote everyday sources, leaving the viewer with a sense of familiarity and closeness.

Exceptionally precise in their execution, with each decision carefully considered by Rezac, the pieces are made to be looked at and thought of with absorption. Their human scale and careful placement (the height on the wall, the distance they hang from the ceiling, etc.) initiates a dialogue that demands time, the works revealing themselves slowly. This combination of exquisite craft and spatial intentionality imparts a knowing presence to the sculptures, lending an ostensible sense that they are full of concealed information. Taciturn, earnest, and magnetic, they toggle between congruence and dissonance, space and form, lightness and solidity.
