Sculpture by Stuart Fink

The Cincinnati Arts Association’s Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts premieres three new exhibitions: A Perfect Storm, a contemplative and provocative site-specific installation by Andrew Scott; Looking in a Distance, a new series of lyrical and lush abstracted landscape paintings by renowned painter Beverly Erschell; and Add-ons, an inventive new series of bronze sculptures and large-scale black and white drawings by acclaimed Cincinnati sculptor Stuart Fink.

A longtime resident of Cincinnati, Stuart Fink has securely established himself as an acclaimed and accomplished sculptor with an extensive exhibition history. He has also completed numerous public sculpture commissions in Cincinnati and throughout Ohio, working in aluminum, cast concrete and granite. Arriving at sculpture through painting and drawing, Fink combines figurative and urban landscape elements to create intriguing three-dimensional forms. In his most recent work, Fink has employed the time-honored tradition of bronze casting to create a new series of abstracted sculpture that juxtaposes unrelated and secondary shapes to create new forms and associations. Add-ons will feature an array of new pedestal-based bronze sculptures conceived and cast in the past two years by Fink. Complementing the bronzes will be a new series of large-scale black and white drawings that boldly accentuate two-dimensional explorations of the sculptural forms.

Stuart Fink earned a bachelor of fine arts in 1971 and a master of fine arts in 1973 from the University of Cincinnati. His work has been exhibited locally at the Contemporary Arts Center, Toni Birckhead Gallery, and C.A.G.E.; and regionally at SPACES, Cleveland, OH; Nationwide Gallery, Columbus, OH; Dayton Art Institute, Dayton, OH; and the Worthington Art Council, Worthington, OH. He has exhibited nationally at the Sculpture Center, New York, NY; and Henri Gallery, Washington, D.C. Fink has completed major public sculpture commissions in cities throughout Ohio including: Cincinnati, Columbus, Lima, Hamilton, and Toledo.
