Drew Liedtke joined the Department of Art + Design
at Central Washington University in 2021. He is also
currently the K-12 Art Instructor for the nearby Thorp
School District. He received his BFA from Utah State
University in 2012 and his MFA from Central Washington
University in 2018.


Drew predominantly makes bricks and builds structures
that reference architectural forms that are, then, placed
into a kiln and fired to high temperatures. While in this
environment, qualities in the bricks emerge and interact
with themselves and one another.  


His intent is to show that these commercially processed
materials are active if they experience enough heat
energy. The created objects strengthen, weaken, crack,
melt, and blend in accordance to their respective elemental
compositions. When cooled, their reactions are captured as
a mysterious gesture: a triumph, a collapse, an embrace.
