    Antique toys directly inspire Fokken’s sculptures, speak? to the transfer of beliefs, values and prejudices between? generations.
    Fokken says, "I use distressed materials to convey an 'antique'? aesthetic, to emphasize that these beliefs have been long? established but are decayed and in need of renewal or ?examination."
    Fokken grew up in a small farming town on the Great Plains in West Central Minnesota. He graduated from St. Cloud State University with a BFA in ceramic sculpture and a minor in business. His inspiration is fueled by imagination, “All those experiences living in a farming community, being close to machinery in a town where there wasn't a lot to do, is what led me to be an artist. I think that your creativity soars when you have to make do with what you have and find ways to entertain yourself through your own imagination.” Fokken’s sculptures can be found in many public art exhibitions and commissions, galleries and museums and private collections.

    A reception will be held on December 9, from 7-9pm at the 912 Art Gallery, located at 912 West St. Germain Street.
