About

stigmatta

Joshua Van Dyke works with painting and sculpture from a small island

studio off the coast of Vancouver. His practice explores notions of

collection and display, materiality, and the overlapping of geographic

and cultural boundaries.

 

In his popular series, The Hunt, used skateboard decks are fashioned

into antler and wildlife trophies. His labour-intensive works reprocess

every part of the skateboard, transforming their meaning to convey

ideas about collection, ritual and the environment.

Van Dyke has exhibited in Vancouver, Glasgow, Finland, and Paris.

He was the recipient of an Olympic Torch grant in 2010 for the public

art installation ‘Corridor’ and recently completed an emerging artist

residency working in metal casting at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop.

He was one of a few artists selected to participate in the softshelter

project with Molo, an internationally acclaimed industrial design house.

 

His work has been published in The Georgia Straight, The Block

Magazine and Western Living Magazine.

 

Van Dyke earned a BFA from The Glasgow School of Art in 2007.

Currently, he lives and works in Canada.
