ABOUT THE ARTIST
Moss is a queer/gender installation and performance artist currently living in Santa Fe, NM. Predominantly self-taught practices in contemporary and traditional craft, ranging from woodwork to digital art and photography, inform their interest in hyperrealities, ritual performance, experiential spaces within 2D and 3D realms, immersive storytelling and boundary-blurring between viewer and artist, performer and audience. Their latest works involve the creation of objects and altars informed but not limited by classical concepts, which are placed in both natural and constructed environments, gradually transforming the surroundings and fuzzing the lines between real and hyperreal. Moss’s work has appeared in numerous institutions across New Mexico, including form & concept, Meow Wolf, No Land, Center for Contemporary Arts, Museum of Contemporary Native Art, 516 ARTS and New Mexico State University Art Museum. Past curatorial work includes Show Pony Gallery (2016-2020), Caldera Gallery and Iconik.
