Nathaniel Parsons, the trouble with remembering

Nathaniel Parsons. October 2009.

Artist Nathaniel Parsons has been a friend of mine for a while now. Do you know his work? It is a mix of nostalgic narrative and Americana mythology that transcends easy classification with its quality craftsmanship, careful palette and tender content.

One real microphone. One carved from wood. Nat’s work is often about translating memory by using warm media that is already pregnant with its own history (like wood, bottlecaps, etc…) relating a tactile experience with life in a modern culture of his own invention.
