About Silas Endicott
A majority of my work focuses on the living and natural world. In my work, I emphasis lesser known animals, plants, and geological processes. In my recent works I emphasis the natural world by creating mixed media works focusing on a specific plant or animal by creating the background in acrylic paint and the creature in embroidery. Many of the creatures featured in my work are important to the planet’s ecosystem but are endangered and receive little media attention and so I hope to shine light on these creatures through my work. Nearly all of my works contain a three-dimensional aspect typically in the form of sculptural pieces. Most of my works are created with a mixture of wood, acrylic paint, embroidery, and found objects.
I am an artist who primarily creates three-dimensional works surrounding animals and the natural world. I currently reside in Wayne, West Virginia and have previously worked as a graphic design and printmaking intern for On the Mark Creations where I would create and print forms as well as screen-print shirts for local businesses and schools. Currently, I am attending Marshall University to obtain a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in sculpture and a minor in geology. I have exhibited artworks at the Marshall University Birke Art Gallery, the Marshall University Student Gallery, and the Marshall University South Charleston Campus. For these exhibitions I have been recognized in the form of a third-place reward in the Annual Student Juried Exhibition for my work in the Marshall University Birke Art Gallery and a grant for group collaboration for the exhibition “Conceptions of Flight” at the Marshall University South Charleston Campus.
