Distance: Connected Pressure

The Graduate Archive

For the past seventy-five years the School of Art and Art History has collected thousands of artworks by artists attending the School's graduate studio programs. Each graduate student was required to leave behind a work they completed during their graduate studies here at the University of Iowa. The collection contains over 6,000 paintings, prints, photographs, sculptures and other art objects. The collection is unique in the country and provides a critical glimpse of academic American art over much of the last century.

Distance: Connected Pressure, 2013

Kwok Pong Tso was born and raised in Hong Kong.  After receiving some education in Hong Kong, he decided to come to the USA to begin exploring the culture while continuing his education.  In 2009 he completed the undergraduate art program at Northwest Missouri State University.  He then worked as a teaching assistant and adjunct instructor in Ceramics at Iowa Central Community College.  After earning his Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Iowa in 2013, he went on to teach at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana.  He is now Assistant Professor of Art and head of the Ceramics Department at Northwest Missouri State University.  The concept of his recent work is form which grows out of his curiosity about the relationship between one object to another.
