biography

T. J. Wilcox was born in Seattle, WA, in 1965. He lives and works in New York, NY and Milan, Italy.

Wilcox has presented his multi-disciplinary art work internationally since the late 1990s. His installation work has often been composed of film and video mediums, which take as their subject complex intersections of historical narrative, personalities, and cultural events interwoven with personal memory, myth, and anecdote. The artist’s moving image work incorporates archival photographs, found footage, as well as original Super-8 and 16mm film, live-action digital video and various forms of animation, resulting in lyrical, collage-like narratives, underscored by poetic, subtitled texts, which accompany the imagery. The subjects and themes of his film and video work appear in different forms, including photographic prints and lightboxes, works of collage and drawings in many forms.
