About Mikey Mosher
Mikey Mosher is an interdisciplinary artist from Massachusetts, currently based in Chicago. He has just received his MFA in Studio Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Much of his work is influenced by his undergraduate Religious Studies background. This academic study of the religious history of New England allowed him to root his reflections on the relationship between religion, spirituality, colonial power, and indoctrination in historical events that took place where he grew up. Since then, he has been using his artistic practice as an act of perpetual self-reeducation; a way of filtering and rearranging the information he picks up from contemporary media to reflect the grim and surreal reality that underlies all corners of American life. More recently, he sees his practice as a channel for genuine spiritual reflection, both for himself and his audience, while infusing cultural critique into that process.
