ABOUT our Residency

Everyone at Guttenberg Arts understands the financial difficulty facing artists of all levels and seeks to support their creative endeavors at our studio with the space and time artist residency (STAR) program.  

STAR provides artists with stipends to cover materials, travel and access to a professionally equipped workspace for the visual arts including printmaking and ceramics.  Artists work is supported with a group show at the end of the residency and three studio visits with arts professionals. Each artist will present a public lecture on their work or conduct a free public workshop towards the close of their three month residency. 

Increasing an artist’s community is the first step toward a sustainable career in the arts.  Guttenberg Arts promotes each STAR fellow in print and on the web, through exhibitions and art fairs.

STAR artists are selected by a blind jury of arts professionals on the merits of their work. Guttenberg Arts does not provide housing.

My work focuses primarily on the grotesque and monstrous as an avenue towards expressing and exorcising social and personal anxieties. My art is primarily narrative in approach, although the conditions of these narratives tend to be ambiguous and undefined. Often, there is a lack of grounding context as figures fill a nebulous space, which highlights the disquieting nature of their interaction. My pieces are inhabited by twisted souls who trip over their own humanity. The body is often a scene of grotesque comedy, exploding in joy or hidden in shame. Iconography from Medieval art often serves as a departure point for my work.
