Like a DJ sampling music to define his own sound, Nathan Mabry openly borrows references from both modern and antiquated cultures to contrive sculptures that transcend time and place; falsifying a ‘super history’ tracing art evolution from its primal beginning to its portentous future. Mabry’s A Very Touching Moment (?) operates as a ‘cover version’ of Rodin, the tribal figure seated in the famous pose of contemplation. Both atavistic and cartoon-like, the totem is strangely retro-futuristic; an idea reflected in its plinth, which is a replica of Tony Smith’s Playground (1962).
