Collection: Jamie Lang

St. Paul, MN

Jamie Lang received his BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and pursued his graduate studies in ceramics at the State University of New York, New Paltz. He received two Project Grants from the Jerome Foundation in St. Paul, the first in 2002 and the second in 2006. Lang’s work reflects his thoughts about architecture, decoration, and memory. His mixed media sculptures are minimal geometric structures that reveal their own architectural planning. Each structure is created by casting adobe into wooden forms, Lang then adds layers of plaster, pigment, and wax to emphasize and decorate the rough surfaces of the form. The altered surfaces of each layer assert the passage of time and the burying and recovery of memories.
