Ekern Artworks

My sculpture is a dark comedy about falling behind the times. As a child I thought I wanted to be an archeologist. Now as an artist I see myself as an archeologist of our present culture. I often poke fun at our rapidly changing technologies, and the inevitable extinction of the old. My work is a hybrid of something you might just as likely see in a natural history museum as a science fiction movie. Given a little time these two are not as far off as they seem.

I use any method necessary to create the imagery I want. While my work has a foundation in ceramics, I use mixed media to create further depth in the pieces. I approach techniques and even mediums as a vocabulary. The more you have available the greater your range of expression. When I stop learning something new I’ll have stopped making art.
