My guest today is creative Nathaniel Hendrickson. Nathan has had his hand in art as creator, performer, and curator. He received a B.A. from Bellarmine University in 2012, and has since been shown in a large variety of exhibitions as well as curated for the Land of Tomorrow gallery space.
Our conversation left me with much to think about, and I believe this feeling aptly sums up the nature of Nathan’s work. Much of his work provokes thought through the communication of significant images. Nathan feels pictures can be quite powerful in our increasingly heavy image economy.
The themes of his work are often colored by his daily reflections of mass culture and his appetite for research— especially the subject of psychology. His newest exhibition at Swanson Contemporary, Surrogate Surface, was inspired by Harry Harlow’s studies with rhesus monkeys.
The show runs till February 14th.
