Tristan Stamm

Tristan Dirk Stamm was born and raised in Massachusetts outside of Boston. He graduated from Marlboro College with a BA in Visual Arts and Environmental Studies. Currently he works and lives in Portland, Maine.

"My artistic work is greatly influenced by my background in the natural sciences, using biological systems as the underlying framework in many of my pieces. By exploring personal issues through a scientific lens, I hope to not only better understand my own struggles and obsessions with sexuality and masculinity, but to also question preconceived societal norms surrounding power structures and gender."

"There is no end or purpose to existence, only ceaseless creation and destruction, governed entirely by chance." Stephen Greenblatt, paraphrasing Lucretius’ On the Nature of Things in The Swerve: How the World Became Modern

The chance that a saguaro seedling will survive to adulthood is almost non-existent. First, the seed has to find its way into the shade of another plant, manage to survive months of dryness while only being able to store a couple of drops of water, and stay warm enough not to freeze during cold winter nights. The seedling must deal with these challenges for anywhere between 38 to 135 years. The probability that a saguaro survives to adulthood is so slim that the forests of 60 ft tall saguaros in the Sonoran Desert seem like they shouldn’t exist.

My work explores the chance of survival, the probability of existence, a struggle with unpredictability, specifically those surrounding the human body, coming to terms with control, power, and lack there of, and the likelihood of producing something complete or finished. These themes are questioned through building a surface out of layers, pulling forms from the background, accenting particular moments, and by the use of previously conceived societal frameworks and images.
