Biography

Thomas Faulkner is a first-year master of fine arts candidate at Louisiana Tech University; school of design. Faulkner is a north Louisiana native where summers were full of taking apart old appliances and using those components to create new objects in his grandfather’s shop. With that upbringing in mind, being a family man, and experience in production printmaking, Faulkner finds domestic objects and creates playful tools for printmaking. However pointless the investigations may at first appear, Faulkner believes these experiments with different shape and size printing blocks and homemade instruments will lead to breakthroughs not yet considered via well-established printing methods.

Artist Statement

The sculptures or apparatus being created use found objects narrative quality. The work often centers around the experience of printmaking and family life. They can resemble tools often found around printmaking rooms such as a brayer, squeegee, or even a press itself. They are reflecting on the domestic environment the artist is surrounded by using toys like a pogo stick or utility items for creation. The sculptures in themselves are arduous and pointless because there are far better well-established means to achieve similar printmaking techniques.
