Artist's Statement

Derrick Te Paske

As a professor of media studies at Framingham State University, I am primarily concerned with theoretical principles and digital production/reproduction methods. In purposeful contrast, my art involves wood and other common tangible materials, employs tools and processes which are decidedly low tech, and results in unique and very physical objects. I have always been interested in classical forms, the ancient, the primitive, and the strange.

Since moving from Iowa to New England in the late 1960’s, I have worked as a carpenter, an English teacher, a photographer, a documentary filmmaker, and an art dealer. I am now a Professor and the Chair of the Communication Arts Department of Framingham State University, where I have taught since 1988.

My documentary productions were screened in venues including the New England Film and Video Festival, Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, and PBS; photographs were exhibited at the Boston Center for the Arts, and the Institute of Contemporary Art. I am a past member of the English Institute, the Photographic Resource Center, and the Boston Film/Video Foundation.

Now, I am an Artist Member of the Medici Society (School of the MFA, Boston), the American Association of Woodturners, and the New England Sculptors Association (NESA). My work has been represented at various New England galleries, including the Signature Gallery (Westport, CT), Lacoste Gallery (Concord, MA), and the Fiber Arts Center (Amherst, MA).

Juried group exhibitions have included the Belmont Gallery of Art; Aldrich Heritage Gallery (Whitinsville, MA); Bristol Community College; Bridgewater State University, the Harbor Art Gallery (UMass Boston); the SMFA Boston; Lexington Arts and Crafts Society; Mazmanian Gallery (Framingham State University); Concord Art Association; the New England Sculpture Service; the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University; and the Community Gallery of the Fuller Museum.

I am represented in the international selection 500 Wood Bowls (Lark Press), the art collection of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (Boston), and the permanent collection of the Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, MA (with attendant 2015 publication in Audacious, the Fine Art of Wood from the Montalto Bohlen Collection). My work has also appeared in American Woodturner (August, 2015 and February, 2016).
