John is an artist that works in sculpture, printmaking and drawing; finding an intersection between the medias in delicate burnt-in images of Montana’s vulnerable cultural and historical icons.
His art is a metaphor for order: sometimes re-expressing order found in the landscape, a mechanical process, the rhythm of form, personal relationships, and the life around him. Each work is often a collaboration of many independent parts that are crafted to come together and express a larger whole.
He is a professor of Art and Art History at St. Olaf College and has installed and exhibited his work nationally and internationally, receiving regional and national grants. He earned his BA at Hope College and MFA in sculpture at Colorado State University. John maintains studios in both Minnesota and Montana.
