    About The Work

    One of Katz's signature "cutouts," Cow (2006) takes the landscape of Maine, the artist's summer home for over fifty years, as its subject. Screenprinted on aluminum on both sides, the sculpture playfully translates the bold, graphic style of Katz's paintings into three dimensions.

    "it's a Maine cow," Katz says of this piece, "but it comes from Italy. There was an experimental farm up there that had these cows and they're very exotic in the United States, and they were sort of in a very attractive place where you could go and see them. I've painted cows before, going way back into the '60s—they always seemed like fun. So I painted this cow in a small painting, a small cut-out, and then I made a cow that was almost life-size—four feet across, or something like that—and it was just a big fun image."
