Mike Wsol employs the
art of reduction to articulate architectural form exploring why
and how structures function in our contemporary society. He believes
that "if one's identity is shaped by the environment, it
is also every individual's responsibility to consider that environment."
Wsol demonstrates his mastery of design and space as a print maker
and as a sculptor using wood, plastic, steel, bronze, copper and
MDF. Concerned with complex relations such as those of natural
and human systems, the need for the presence of the past versus
the needs of contemporary lifestyles, and the ways hierarchical
systems are supported and/ or created by the environments we design,
Wsol engages the lens of architecture to observe and critique.
Mike Wsol was Assistant Professor and Sculpture Area Head at Indiana
University Bloomington until he moved to Charlottesville, Virginia
to attend UVA's School of Architecture for his Masters degree.
Wsol holds an MFA in Sculpture from The University of Georgia,
an MA in Sculpture and a BA in Sculpture from Eastern Illinois
