About Artist: Jeremy Kidd examines the potential for subversion of the man-made with the organic, the biological, and the unexpected. His focus has been to express non-adaptive evolution of the man-made. In this case, non-adaptive refers to the evolutionary growth that takes place not as the result of evolutionary necessity but as an expression and yearning of unexplained natural forces; forces that wish to express themselves not adaptively but reactively in an emotive manner. These forces reveal themselves as adaptations that occur to biological or architectural facades and take place as biomorphic aberrations or deformities to their systematic surface patterns. Kidd’s works serve as both paintings and photography in the formal sense and as models for civic/organic hybrids, a kind of evolutionary reconciliation or mutation of man and nature. Utilizing a combination of digitally-manipulated photography, painting and sculptural elements the artist juxtaposes two conflicting worlds---man’s ecologically hazardous practices and Nature. His adaptations serve as a metaphor and commentary on the human condition – the need for nature to express itself emotively through the man-made, man’s need to tamper, coerce and control nature. Here Gaia, the spirit of nature, is beginning to tamper, coerce and control the man-made thereby redressing the imbalance. Kidd suggests that there is an intelligence underlying nature and it is intent on reclaiming and subverting. Kidd feels compelled to champion nature’s reactive attempts at reclaiming and expressing itself, believing this is why he is motivated to create bifurcations in architectural structure, utilizing the tradition of fractals in the chaos theory.
