Hi-Fructose Studio Visit Sheds Light on Sculpture and Functional Art Alum’s Artistic Evolution
Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (KCAD) alumnus Dustin Farnsworth (’10, BFA Sculpture and Functional Art) recently took a break from his residency at the McColl Center for Art + Innovation to give Hi-Fructose a tour of his Charlotte, N.C. studio and a window into his evolving creative process.
Farnsworth’s large-scale sculptural works blend human forms and architectural elements in a depiction of the weight—cultural, social, and familial—new generations of humanity are made to bear by everything that came before them.
Since receiving a $10,000 Windgate Project Grant from the Center for Craft, Creativity, and Design in the summer of 2016, Farnsworth has been busy preparing new work, some of which is part of a group exhibition currently on display at the McColl Center, Tell Me More.
Read more about Farnsworth’s new work and his upcoming exhibition over at Hi-Fructose.
