Filmmaker, photographer, and painter Harmony Korine is best known for writing the 1995 cult film Kids. In 1997, Korine wrote and directed the film, Gummo. Forgoing conventional narrative, Gummo embodies sketches written by Korine, hence the nonlinear, fragmented events over the course of the film capitalizing on the obscure. Korine’s paintings, like his films, embrace dichotomy. He works with materials found at his local Salvation Army resulting in bold, dynamic forms that Korine refers to as “mistakism.” Korine was interviewed in Nashville on July 2, 2005
