Travis LeRoy Southworth

New York, NY, USA


American, b. 1979   —   We live in a strange world, where we touch screens more than the ones we love. By day, I work as an image correction specialist in the beauty industry, spending several hours in a dark room, carefully removing facial imperfections. This work profoundly informs my art practice as I stockpile hundreds of digital blemishes and color adjustments to construct new portraits. I integrate these elements into my work to open up discussions of image manipulation, computerized labor, and self-perception. Travis LeRoy Southworth (b. 1979, Honolulu, Hawaii) is a visual artist based in NYC. Exhibitions include The Drawing Center (NYC), Martha Otero Gallery (Los Angeles), Dock Gallery (Basel), Mixed Greens Gallery (NYC), Thomas Robertello Gallery (Chicago), and The Bronx Museum of the Arts (Bronx). His work has been reviewed in the NY Times, Basler Zeitung, and Art Slant. Southworth participated in the Artist in the Marketplace (AIM 29) Program at The Bronx Museum of the Arts (2008) and received a BRIC Media Arts Fellowship (2009). He was awarded a NYFA Fellowship in Photography (2010) and residency in Switzerland that involved a project with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN (2013). Southworth holds a MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2007) and a BFA from the University of Arizona (2004).
