Joseph Gurka is primarily known for his sculptural and installation works that take on the form of micro-environments. He creates situations for the viewer to become more aware of themselves in the space they occupy. His installations have multiple points of entry. He reveals the beauty in the various objects and materials in his works by presenting them in a manner where their perceived consciousness emanates—thus aiding the viewer in becoming present and arriving at this discovery themselves. Joseph Gurka was born in Roselle, NJ. He received his Bachelor in Fine Arts from Humboldt State University, Arcata, CA and is currently a Master of Fine Arts Candidate at Maine College of Art, Portland, ME with an expected graduation date of 2019.
