ARTIST STATEMENT
Kyle Fokken
Sculptor


I am a mixed media sculptor who combines diverse imagery into hybrid sculptures that explore cultural contexts between people.

I use vintage toy and ‘folk art’ aesthetics to explore the passing down of cultural values between generations. I make artwork that tantalizes the eye and invites the audience to linger and look deeper at the work and reflect on what we believe about ourselves.
