Josh Slater (American, b. 1979) is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and works in Brooklyn. Born and raised in New York, Slater earned a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in partnership with Tufts University in 2001. Slater describes the themes in his recent work, which includes collages and video, as being “like a deep thought that’s buried and trying to be unearthed,” more akin to an impression—or a feeling—than a concrete idea. “Maybe each collage is a part of a clue to the overall image,” says Slater. “Something that flashes before your eyes before you go to sleep or maybe a hazy memory.
