Graduate Teaching Assistant
John Klosterman is a native of Daphne, Alabama. Growing up, he developed a fondness for machines and the tinkering that came along with them. His love of tinkering now takes on a two-dimensional form as he transfers ink to paper. Instead of the turn of a wrench, it is now the carving of a block with a gouge. Layers of each print, much like parts of a car, are assembled in a manner that creates a functioning vehicle for the message of each piece. Klosterman received the BFA from the University of South Alabama in 2015, with a major in printmaking and a minor in interdisciplinary studies. At The University of Alabama, he is a graduate teaching assistant working towards his MFA in printmaking. He was among the graduate students featured in the 2017 Graduate Student Show who were also videoed giving gallery talks about their art work and practice.
