Historical Context:
Hosterman's works explore ideas about individual and human contexts. Through college, he constructs and deconstructs each image, keeping what feels essential and eliminating excess. Pairing and juxtaposing the elements allows him to redefine the image into something new. Hosterman received his undergraduate degree from Penn State University and his graduate degree from Indiana University in Bloomington. Additionally, the artist studied at The Artists' Press Printshop in Johannesburg, South Africa on a Fulbright scholarship. Hosterman is currently an Assistant Professor of Printmaking at Grand Valley State University.
