About John Selburg

“John Selburg is an artist from Peoria, Illinois, specializing in drawing and sculpture. He received his BFA in Drawing, Sculpture, and Graphic Design from Bradley University in 2006, and his MFA in Drawing from University of Missouri in 2009. John has been teaching Art at Illinois Central College since 2010. John’s work ranges from massive wood carvings and monumental charcoal drawings to small delicate ink and watercolor drawings. The imagery in John’s work spans intimately rendered human faces trans-ubstantiating into birds, animals, and trees to surreal landscapes.

Obscure Dignitaries is a new series of small ink and liquid pigment drawings by John Selburg.

With intricate line work and intimate rendering, Selburg has created an army of strange creatures inhabiting an invisible landscape. The drawings are humorous and ominous metaphors of contemporary existence. The backgrounds are barren, some to the extent of being replaced by translucent mylar leaving the viewer wondering what kind of world these creatures populate. The drawings are elegantly presented pressed between glass on minimal white frames one inch wide and two inches deep handmade by the artist.”
