the text on Roy Staab for the Polish Catalogue of - Poruszające prądy, 5 Land Art Festiwal / landart.lubelskie.pl
English: the Bug River Meanders Where the river flows slowly, trend is weak, which is in the middle course, usually formed meanders. As time passed, they move towards the mouth, they can become oxbow lakes. There pets can enjoy the benefits of a mild ecosystem. But only briefly, then oxbow lake overgrown with vegetation and disappears. This year's Land Art Festival also had its oxbow lakes - this could be described as works that in nature have a beginning, have become an integral part of it. In the water, in the middle of mainstream, it has placed its implementation entitled MOVING CURRENTS, Roy Staab (USA). Braided twine reeds and branches represent here openwork design, mimicking his tangle of river currents. The measure flow is sort of a prohibited ground, but also anyone's, but while creating jobs territorial claims reported by Polish and Belarusian border guards. This subtle, reflecting in the water work, visible from both sides, seems to ignore political order and return to the eternal order of nature. Construction elements intertwine and unravel currents mix, and the animals, not paying attention to the political border, exist where it is convenient to them. Also beavers, which - apparently interested in the implementation - repeatedly violated it.

BIG RED ROUND is re-hung to spin in the wind February 9th, 2015
the death flowers removed before the heavy snow fall
BIG RED ROUND dancing in the wind
January 28th, I re-installed BIG RED ROUND my yard
returning to BECOMES A STAR ice skating over the site January 2, 2015
The installation BIG RED ROUND by Roy F Staab is no more. It was suspended in the middle of the Jazz Gallery Center, Milwaukee, Wisconsin from December 5th to January 3rd when it came down.....nature returns back to nature..
many, many of the Milwaukee Art connoisseurs came to the gallery this afternoon. and while they looked and talked I did this photograph of the installation from below.
I AM GALLERY SITTING MY SHOW TODAY DECEMBER 27TH UNTIL 5. this is The Jazz Gallery Center for the Arts, 926 E. Center Street, Milwaukee.
My Gallery Talk at the Jazz Gallery Center reception December 12, 2014
December 14th, I was gallery sitting on Saturday and then it became dark with no patrons in the space I played with the lights to photograph the installation suspended from the ceiling. I fix the lighting so there's a shadow against the back wall.
VIDEO part two of NATURAL FORMS at the Jazz Gallery Center with new prints.
The reception is Friday December 12th.
Suspended from the ceiling in the middle of the gallery is the installation BIG RED ROUND
made of red dogwood.
This is the exhibition of Roy Staab in the Jazz Gallery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and how it is for the first week, with photographs of Roy Staab's installations on the walls and an installation suspended in the middle of the room made with RED dogwood -- installed December 5th, 2014.
November 19th -- the party is over, today between the snow and the strong winds
how can I compete with nature?
how can I compete with nature?
November 19th, the party is over, it is time to call it a game, winter
is here and the ice on my work and it is down with part in the water.
I came to photograph my work after a 10 day absence, winter is coming, and saw that the wind and storms have battered my work. So I walked out and lifted and adjusted the lines. The water is very cold in November.
I call this work BECOMES A STAR after what happens with a reflection
and I made an overhead photograph.
October 22nd, this morning the field was white with frost. The sun came up bright. I went to the lake and it was almost calm, cold and calm, steam coming up on the south part; and there was my art in the shade on the east shore -- how nature does it's magic.
October 21st, cold water and thinking... yes I show that I use natural material. but the buckthone branches are too crooked. so I cut the tops off to only show the essence. that is what is important. did it last night near sunset or 6pm..had to walk into the cold water. nummmmm
The work that I made in Korea on the land sort of blended into the land. Mr. Ko suggested it might have been better over water. Back in Wisconsin I waited for the right time to work -- and here is the work over water. Horizontal [trees] did not work exactly here. so I made the center the highest. The fine reeds are supported by not so straight buckthorn are out of the water. The wind finally stopped [almost] and the fog rolled in. Early in the morning I got these magic images, magic for me and what nature has to offer. no title yet. Obok does not work in America only Korea.
Late afternoon October 10th, I simplify the work and lifted it out of the water on buckthorn branches.
I waited for the weather to warm up after a cold September. October 10th is the day I made this is the FIVE PETAL in situ sculpture on Big Cedar Lake on the shallow water by the gazebo off the grounds of the nursing home. I brought in the reeds and picked buckthorn for supports. I made the lines on the shore and brought them out to the site using the down wind direction for the first 'petal'. as you see the center is in the air and the outer parts floating on the surface of the water. With the strong wind the FIVE PETALS had a short life. one for me and then the camera. The iPad shoots video at different settings, I did not know that this would be so low a resolution.. this is all I have.

I need a new tool for overhead photographs. Someone suggested a drone with a camera so I got one. Now to master flying it. And what else do you need to guid and fly it, a smart phone. The iPad does not work and breaks contact.
September 1st....I stayed an extra day to get good photographs of my work and a few other artists that had to leave. Many days were cloudy or had rain. A good photograph is the lasting document. I met nice people, gave a tour and photographed my work one last time.

sculpture park ground and took a photograph at Kazuya Iwaki and his students work
Me, Raman Adone and Andi Ramdani

Starting from the point that I first found this grove of silver aspens
Published on Jun 27, 2014 In the mine disaster of 1926, miners were trapped at various levels -- the inspiration of this installation in Miner's Park, Ironwood, Michigan. It is made of invasive buckthorn gathered from nearby, drilled and pegged and tie to the trees on either side of the path.
I am making LEVELS OF WAITING on the Miner's Trail, in Ironwood, Northern Michigan. It is a positioned over the trail at a summit going through a grove of silver aspens and flanked by forest ferns; June 24th. I sketched out the placements of the triangles with string. this is the first of four.
