Blythe’s work focuses on dissolving hallucinogenic ideologies of outdated systemic western capitalist structures and offering a performative shift. A shift of ideological questions as physical observations in response transforming into BEING(s). Sculptures in their house, paintings hang in the background, beings on display, reading for all eternity, and writing letters from the prison of capital- Left to die, instead become their own experiments. These zombies of ideology rise-UP out of the economy of nostalgia and reclaim the cannibalized hysterical rainbow that leads out into the open body of water, reborn into the possibility of a sustained non-binary Horizon. Is there such thing as a new way of life? Blythe’s work dissects intersectional moments of hallucinatory decoration, identity, and value operating within the body of the commons and to the backdrop of non-binary eco-conservation.
