Mongrel Nation, Still Life with Marble

The mystery surrounding Mongrel Nation is best kept intact. While the website gives some information away about the context of Mongrel Nation, I like my dream untampered with. In my mind, the studio is a kind of entity commissioned to make the world a little bit more beautiful and a little bit more enigmatic, project by project. 


I don’t want to think that the thing that is Mongrel Nation needs to pay taxes, or allocate budgets, or meet deadlines. The more strategic my work gets, and the more political the context of my work is, and the more abstract my ideas around design get…the more I see an absolute truth in the concrete, out-of-life, faux-realistic renderings of Mongrel Nation. It’s a vision that has nothing to do with processes or schematics, nothing to do with politics.

It’s an image and its beauty. Its connotations and subtleties. I envy the perfection and the ambition. I envy its non-belonging and non-reality. I envy the poetry.
