Damon Locks

Damon Locks’s work often revolves around people and their landscape. He works in a combination of drawing, photography, digital manipulation and silk screening. The work can feel socially political or fantastically abstract in its narrative, sometimes stepping out of the realm of image making and presenting itself as button-like objects, or sometimes like newspapers as art with text to further blur the lines between the real and the artistically described world presented.  Damon is currently working with CUP on an MPP about the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights.
