Harlow Skalwold is an ultra-contemporary American artist who explores gender, physical and mental illness, and current societal issues. These themes connect to recent traumatic 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, reliquaries and sculpture, and meticulous mixed media collages incorporating photography, illustration, found objects, paint and pigment.
Highly influenced by Dada, process art, and the DIY punk ethic, with unorthodox forms of training, they consider themselves part of the Art Singulier movement. Their artwork has been exhibited in galleries and awarded in art competitions across the United States.
Skalwold is a mental health advocate, and has been coping with major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder since a young age.
They currently live and work in the New York metropolitan area.
