Shelter Shift #5.04
by Phil Vander Weg
About the Artist: From childhood, while growing up in upstate New York and southwest Michigan, Phil Vander Weg enjoyed building things and working with malleable materials. Eventually those early endeavors became more sustained creative efforts. Tactile possibilities with materials and explorations with real and illusionary space have been a focus for many years. Working with the tension created by ambiguities of materials or playful associations with forms within more critical context is central to the dialogue. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Design and Master of Fine Arts in Art with an emphasis in sculpture degrees from the University of Michigan. Phil Vander Weg is Emeritus Professor of Art, Gwen Frostic School of Art at Western Michigan University. Medium: Bronze
