The Mount Allison Visiting Artist Program Presents: Clint Neufeld
Artist Talk: 7:30 pm, Tuesday 20 October 2015
Saskatchewan-based artist, Clint Neufeld will give a talk on his work at the Owens Art Gallery, Mount Allison University on Tuesday 20 October at 7:30pm. This talk is open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
Clint Neufeld was born and raised in small town Saskatchewan. Prior to pursuing a career in art, Neufeld spent three years with the Canadian military, which included a deployment to the former Yugoslavia in 1994. In 2006 he completed his MFA at Concordia University. He now lives and works on an acreage near the town of Osler, Saskatchewann.
As writer and curator Jenn Budney notes: “Clint Neufeld’s sculptures involve an intricate play between contradictory forms, materials, and purposes. For the last few years, Neufeld has been working with the most “Saskatchewan” of forms: engines, excavating buckets, and other mechanical devices that are employed with great frequency throughout the province. Yet, unlike the real objects, Neufeld’s sculptures are not made with industrial materials. Rather, they are lovingly handcrafted from such substances as porcelain and wax.”
Clint Neufeld’s talk is part of the Visiting Artist Program, a series co-sponsored by Mount Allison’s Department of Fine Arts, The Owens Art Gallery, and Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre The Visiting Artist Program is funded by a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts to the Department of Fine Arts at Mount Allison University.
