Meet Saskatchewan artist Clint Neufeld; he works with engines, excavating buckets, and other mechanical devices and tools employed throughout the province to make his lovingly handcrafted sculptures from delicate substances such as painted ceramic, porcelain and wax, and paired with domestic furniture, doilies and other parlour accoutrements. Starting from the personal, Neufeld mines his regional prairie past and relationships with male figures in his life, investigation masculine and feminine dichotomy and clichés. Beautiful and meaningful, Neufeld’s objects speak to notions of art making, aesthetics and identity politics on both a national and regional level.
