ERIC  KNOCHE

"Although my current work lacks an overt narrative and on one level deals largely with formal issues of line, shape, mass, texture etc., my hope is that my work communicates with others on a level outside the spectrum of speech and conscious thought."

ERIC KNOCHE Biography

Knoche touched clay for the first time ten years ago and has had dirty hands ever since. Originally from Minnesota, Eric studied anthropology in India, poetry in California, taught ceramics at a college in Thailand, and drove a muffin truck in New York City before apprenticing to ceramist Jeff Shapiro. He later completed a short term apprenticeship to Japanese Living National Treasure, Isezaki Jun. In addition to playing with mud, he enjoys hiking, reading and checking the cloud formations for the face of Elvis.

Knoche received his BA degree from the University of Minnesota. He exhibits and teaches internationally. Eric currently works from his studio in Western North Carolina.

ERIC KNOCHE Statement

"My current work ranges from small puzzles to human size outdoor works to manipulatable sculpture to large installations with many pieces. I make things I am curious to see. The work tends to evolve out of itself and I often feel like I am an archeologist excavating my own subconscious. Here are some things that I think influence my work: male and female figures, bones, machine parts, houses, clouds, landscapes, algebra equations, micro-facial movements, fact and truth, alphabets and foreign languages, spacial relationships, tools I don't know how to use, the distortional nature of memory, the limits of ocular perception, plants, neutron stars, dancing, running water, and songbirds."
