Dirk Staschke: Recent Museum Acquisitions

DIRK STASCHKE / Soliloquy #2, 2016 / Ceramic, Scrap, Wood, Epoxy / 29 x 24 x 16 inches / Collection of the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art
Mark Moore Fine Art is very pleased to announce the acquisition of a major work (pictured below) by artist DIRK STASCHKE for the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art Permanent Collection.
Named for its benefactor, the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at Utah State University was founded in 1982 through an insightful and generous gift from the Nora Eccles Treadwell Foundation. The Museum’s 23,000 square foot, four-level purpose-built facility was designed by architect Edward Larabee Barnes. Emphasizing 20th- and 21st-century American art with an emphasis on art in the American West, today the collection consists of over 5,000 artworks.
Dirk Staschke is best known for his exploration of Dutch Vanitas still life themes in the medium of ceramics. His current body of work explores the space in between sculpture and painting. His work often uses meticulous representation as foil for examining skill and craft.
I would highly recommend that you view this high informative 4 minute film visit with the artist for additional information on his work and the concepts behind it at this link provided HERE.
“I make sculptures based on paintings in what is traditionally considered a craft medium. In this translation, the sculptural representation of still life painting creates abstract forms. The results are beautifully made objects that simultaneously expose the crude structures of their creation.The pieces are both a simple exploration of residual forms derived from representation and a question regarding the merits of an Art object.”– Dirk Staschke
MMFA is also very pleased to present the first online exhibition of the work of Dirk Stachke in an exclusive featured ARTSY feature on view now.
Staschke received his BFA from the University of Montevallo followed by an MFA from Alfred University and has maintained an ongoing studio practice and extensive exhibition record for the last twenty years. During this time, he has taught at many notable universities, including Alfred University and New York University. His work has been shown internationally and resides in the permanent collections of several museums including the Smithsonian Museum in Washington (DC); Icheon Museum, World Ceramic Center (Gwango-dong) South Korea; Portland Art Museum (OR); Birmingham Museum of Art;  Museum of Fine Arts, Houston;. He has received various artist’s grants including grants from The Virginia Groot Foundation and the Canada Council on the Arts. Staschke currently resides in Portland Oregon where he is a full time studio artist.
