Martin Sammy Gardea

My practice is a process of making sense out of nonsense, through a crescendo of heavy riffs while marching through the tundra. Always prepared with a sharp wit, my work is positioned within a subculture while constructing its own folklore. Notions of remembrance are found through the implication of archival layers. I work conceptually, re-contextualizing the truth of an objects origin, through a process of tongue-in-cheek word play. Through the forming of agency in personal anecdotes, I create situations of obscurity and humor that facilitates my life imitating art.
