filthy is a non-binary multimedia artist working and living in portland, oregon.
i lavish in androgyny, bright colors and patterns, sparkles and make up. call me he/she/or they, i feel them all, and sometimes none.
my projects are made of dreams, star fragments and pieces of fuckery from the world we think we know but will truly never hold.
Growing up a dirty child in a wild world, I often felt out of place without understanding why. As technology and the age of information move to the forefront, it has become apparent that this displacement is common for others, a symptom of a culture crafted out of unattainable dreams and presented through mass media culture. For these reasons, my work revolves heavily around themes of identity, technology and vulnerability.
Working with photography, videography, installation, and sculpture, I leverage nostalgia and humor to create commentary on the absurdities of social standards and embrace playfulness by experimenting with varying gender expressions and utilizing saturated color.
