Ken MacklinBiography: Ken Macklin is one of several constructivist sculptors who emerged in Edmonton during the 1980's. Macklin studied sculpture and ceramics at the University of Alberta from 1972 to 1978 and advanced sculpture at St. Martins School of Art in London, England in 1979. He has attended international workshops at the Emma Lake Artists' Workshop; the Triangle Workshop in its inagural year at Mashomack, NY and again as a group leader in 1986; the Triangle Workshop in Barcelona in 1987; and the Phil Berman Sculpture Workshop in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1993. His work can be found in public collections in Edmonton and St. Albert, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, Lehigh Valley Hospital, Pennsylvania, Lock Haven University, Pennsylvania, and Cheyney University, Pennsylvania. Macklin's work conveys a specific artistic sensibility that has been characterized by an interest in balance, the relationship of the sculpture to the ground, and the clustering of different shapes and forms. His works combine sections of great mass with delicate, almost drawn, linear elements and areas of light filled openness.
