Joseph Stashkevetch (b. 1958, New Jersey) develops his intensely intricate and monumental, black and white compositions in progressive stages. The paper's surface is sanded away as the image is built up with conte crayon. The process, both additive and reductive, creates an atmospheric quality in which light and shadow are in constant play.
Stashkevetch's work has been exhibited extensively in the United States and Europe and appears in numerous public and private collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
The artist lives and works in New York City.
