Lyndon Barrois Jr. is an Allegheny County-based artist whose practice is informed by constructed realities, material economy, and nuanced representations of marginal experiences. His work often uses found, altered or replicated print and cinematic media. He has an interest in how self-determinacy of identity has been shaped by a community’s history of visually representing its own people. He will use the $10,100 grant to fund an artist residency at LATITUDE in Chicago and two exhibitions, one in Seattle and the other in Portland, Oregon.
