Thick, Wet Hide uses concrete installation and other articles to obscure, alter and exaggerate identity. It explores a hyper textural world where callused sirens teeter between a mythological and contemporary existence. Elements of popular, and underground American culture serve as the inspired thread stitching together the work's surreal environment.
Premiered at The Garage, San Francisco as part of their RAW residency program.
