Gary Batzloff is an artist, sculptor, and educator. He received his BFA in Sculpture from the University of West Florida in 2004 and his MFA in Visual Studies/Sculpture from Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2008. He currently serves as Visiting Assistant Professor of Sculpture/3D at Oklahoma State University.

Gary’s work delves into the relationship between his practice and the history of Landscape in America. His work engages and contemporizes Landscape as a medium through the use of GPS and locating technologies and the intersection of the physical form or place and the digital world. He uses the processes and visual language of 3D modeling and fabrication to achieve a current interpretation of landscape in the modern era. His work and research utilize materials that are relevant to the landscape being identified including regionally indigenous woods, metals, and finishes that respond to the industrialization of the United States, and bright colors that are reminiscent of sunsets and sunrises overseeing the growth and entropy of each unique place.
