Filmmaker, photographer, and painter Harmony Korine is best known for writing the 1995 cult film Kids. Korine’s paintings, like his films, embrace dichotomy, at once attracting and repelling viewers. He works with materials found at his local Salvation Army in Nashville, Tennessee, including masking tape, squeegees, house paint, and steak knives. Using a brush reduces Korine’s art-making possibilities and releases an unconscious force within him, resulting in bold, dynamic forms that Korine refers to as “mistakism.” An interest in loops and hypnotic repetition led Korine to produce his “Checking Madness” series of warped checkerboard patterns, while the sequential images in film inspired his “Loop Paintings” of distorted photographs collaged on canvas, which recall Andy Warhol’s “Death and Disaster” series.
