    Sublime Grime The Roadtrip

    I pursue a multidisciplinary method of producing work as a way to offer many avenues of interpretations to my aesthetic and conceptual interests. The anthropological and theoretical concepts of nature as the ultimate state of otherness play an essential role in my practice. I use the appearances of unruly growths, crystalline formations, dead animals, and melting substances to embody moments of the uncanny. Tropes of degradation often determine the formal qualities in my work in order to isolate the look and feel of atrophy. Natural forms are referenced and composed in ways to suggest the appearance that something has gone wrong.
