Artist Bio : Dennis Sipiorski

Dennis Sipiorski

Professor Dennis Sipiorski received a MFA in Ceramics from the University of Notre Dame and has two degrees in Education from the University of Wisconsin.

“During the 25+ years I’ve spent in Louisiana, my art work has changed many times. I am mainly a storyteller and my work illustrates the images and subjects in my day-to-day world. The style of my work is flat and direct.
I use many media in addition to clay- metal, watercolors, oils, photography. Each media is picked because of the unique qualities that it brings to the finished piece.

I’m not trying to create a new art form. My work simply tells the viewer what I consider important in my life. All of these subjects have been used many times throughout the centuries. All of these past images are noted and sometimes incorporated into my work. I hope my stories are universal to the viewer. I want my work to ask questions about life, but not necessarily produce all of the answers.”
