HOLLIS BROWN THORNTON

I typically take things from the past, from pop culture to family photos, and break those images down. I erase the identities in family photos. I draw pop culture stuff with permanent markers. I’ll sometimes pixelate those images. My two overall fixations are memory and change. These memories come from my youth. I remember in the early 90s, when I was in high school, I thought the 80s were so uncool, but it was a unique time. Bright colors. Max Headroom. Blade Runner. The Goonies. R.E.M. The NES and early phases of digital technology. I think using memory and change as my main themes, I'm mostly concerned with mortality. Not really the fear of death, but the fact that we know we’re limited, and we come up with stories and explanations to deal with these circumstances
