Nathaniel Hendrickson is a visual artist from Kentucky. His artistic practice extends the language of painting into the realm of performance, installation, video, choreography, and drawing. He has an MFA in visual art with a dual emphasis in painting and performance from Florida State University. He has exhibited, performed and participated in artist residencies regionally and internationally. His current practice responds to the social and political exhaustion of vernacular expression and grapples with a transgressive desire to “ape” and embody anxiety through ontological and epistemological cut-up, intervention, and social/political contradiction through performance.
