This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Sculptor Richard Stankiewicz, born in Philadelphia in 1922, was most closely associated with the Assemblage movement. He studied with Hans Hofmann at the Hoffman School between 1945 and 1949, and, in Europe, with Fernand Leger in 1950 and Ossip Zadkine in 1950-51.

After his return to the United States, he began to create works from scrap metal and discarded mechanical and household equipment, integrating their forms into compositions that could be both formally elegant and witty ("Kabuki Dancer," 1956, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York City).

Unlike some assemblage-makers, Stankiewicz did not transform the objects he used. Despite the limitations imposed by the materials, he developed a body of work noted for its intricate spatial relations and technical innovation.

Stankiewicz was also an art educator and held positions at the State Univeristy, New York, Albany, 1967-and at Amherst College from 1970-71.

He died in 1983 in Worthington, Massachusetts.
