Sadie Harmon creates multimedia installations from drawings, collages, and sculpture. Her work investigates the connections between the lexicon of cultural references such as Twin Peaks, sideshow performers, and "the abyss."

Harmon's work illuminates obscure connections within her dynamic subjects and maps out their hidden associations through delicate yet powerful installations. Her work unfolds as a specific portrait of one's interior reasoning, laced with sufficient evidence to entangle the viewer. Sadie Harmon received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2008.
