Extended Label Info: David Thauberger is known for his depiction of the local architecture in Southern Saskatchewan. His precise compositions and almost machine-like application of colour emphasize the flatness of the picture plane and transform his often-humble subject matter into visual icons. In this lithographic print, simply titled “At Home” Thauberger depicts his grandfather’s homestead farm, a small house and windmill surrounded by prairie fields. David Allan Thauberger (1948 – ) is an artist who has contributed greatly to the promotion and preservation of Canadian heritage and folk art in Saskatchewan. He was born in Holdfast and studied ceramics at the University of Saskatchewan, Regina Campus, earning his BFA (1971). The ceramic “Funk Art” sculptor David Gilhooly inspired Thauberger and other artists of his generation to create artwork based on their personal experience and geographical region. Thauberger earned his MA (1972) from California State University and then an MFA (1973) in Missoula, Montana before returning to Regina. Over his career, David Thauberger’s work as an artist, collector, educator, and philanthropist have been recognized with the Order of Canada (2008), the Lieutenant Governor's Saskatchewan Artist Award (2009), the Saskatchewan Order of Merit (2012), and the Queen's Diamond Medal (2012). He has exhibited internationally, and his work is held in numerous public and private collections, including the National Gallery (Ottawa) and CocaCola (USA).
