West End Master Series | Artist Talk
Michael Stasiuk is a multimedia sculptor who lives and works in Portsmouth, NH. A self-described “animator of objects,” Stasiuk’s work gives new context to otherwise commonplace or discarded items. His work, found in private and corporate collections, invokes a strong sense of nostalgia through its simple and inventive joinery of wood, metal and fiber. Stasiuk works with a childlike sensibility fueled by years of teaching and collaborating with children and adults. He has been a theatrical prop master for the Mudd Butt Mystery Theatre Troupe in Telluride, Colorado for 26 years. In artist residencies, he has collaborated with children and adults from around the world bringing characters of all sizes to life in a variety of materials.
As part of PMAC’s new West End Master Series, this artist talk is free and open to the public. Please join us for an intimate and engaging conversation with the artist about his process and inspiration.
