Joshua Enck employs compound-complex curves, angular geometries, and the intersection of disparate volumes to create quirky, animated forms that reflect his training as an architect and furniture designer. He complements his intuitive form-making process with scrupulous attention to detail. He continually experiments with materials and construction methods.
He has exhibited his work widely and is currently represented by Simon Gallery in Morristown, New Jersey. His work is included in private collections in Michigan, New Jersey, Maine, New York, Rhode Island, Illinois, California, and elsewhere. His most recent solo exhibition was at Simon Gallery in the summer of 2016, and his first museum exhibition was at the University of Maine Museum of Art in Bangor, Maine in 2011. His work has been recognized with two fellowships from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts and the Excellence in Craft Artist Fellowship from The Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston, Massachusetts.
Joshua received an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and a BSAS from the School of Architecture in the College of Fine and Applied Arts at the University of Illinois. He has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design, Williams College, and the University of Rochester. He is currently based in Rochester, New York.
