Interdisciplinary artist, Harlow Skalwold, explores gender identity and the non-binary in relation to women's issues, current political climates, and the societal taboos of physical and mental illness. These themes connect to recent traumatic series of events in their life which resulted in a stronger resolve to delve deeper into the imaginative process as a therapeutic reprieve. Skalwold’s work includes abstract painting, sculpture, assemblage, and meticulous mixed media collages incorporating images from vintage and antique magazines and medical texts, found objects, paint and pigment. The results of their work often seem comedic - humor arising spontaneously as defense mechanism to either deflect from or protect against the true nature of what has been witnessed.
Highly influenced by Dada, process art, and the DIY punk ethic, combined with unorthodox forms of training, they consider themselves part of the Art Singulier movement. Skalwold is a mental health advocate, and has been coping with major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder since a young age.
They are currently sheltering in place in the New York metropolitan area.
