Associate Professor

Multidisciplinary artist and musician Chris Sollars, working within an anti-capitalist frame, Sollars takes to the streets and landscape in order to have immediate interaction with a public audience and to collect society's detritus, trash, and artifacts for sculptures. His process, physical as well as conceptual, collides dissimilar materials to create unexpected and derisory forms, while commenting on larger societal issues. The documentation of these actions through photography, sound, and video, creates the basis for installations that are often absurd and comedic.
