Artist Bio

Darren Douglas Floyd is a motion picture artist working in 16mm film, digital video and 3D animation. His creative practice redeploys subversive feminist production strategies to interrogate masculinity.  His works are simultaneously personal and political, fragmented, concerned with the daily, non-linear, focused on the body, sexually self-aware, emotionally vulnerable, non-hierarchical, oscillating and contradictory, and directly address the viewer.  His new project, a forthcoming 3D animation, follows a trajectory of sickness, failed relationships and masculine regret.  Darren has been accepted to several prestigious artist residencies including Yaddo, I-Park and the Millay Colony for the Arts. His work has been exhibited at the AC Institute, CANADA, Video Dumbo and Gallery 138 in New York City and screened in many group shows and film festivals.  He is an Assistant Professor of Video, Digital and New Media at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN.
