OSU Fine Arts Graduate (2001 BFA cum laude) Ben Buswell, was born in Dallas, Oregon, in 1974. After briefly studying architecture, he received a BFA from Oregon State University in 2001 and a MFA from The University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2005. Ben Buswell creates objects through emergent processes and the excavation of materiality. His work is concerned with the construction of shared experience, knowledge and identity. He lives and works in Portland with his family, and teaches Sculpture and Design at Portland Community College. He has also had solo exhibitions in both Portland and Seattle and has been included in The 2006 Oregon Biennial at the Portland Art Museum, Portland 2012: A Biennial of Contemporary Art at Disjecta, and recent exhibitions in San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
