J.D. McPherson is a new media artist and musician. He was raised on a cattle ranch in the rural community of Buffalo Valley, Oklahoma.
Currently, his work focuses primarily on an idealized system of properties and mythologies surrounding a rural (or more specifically, rural Southeast Oklahoman) characteristic. Other prevalent current research issues in his work include material hierarchy, regional mythology, strawman geology, card magic, and the acquisition of (muscle) memory through repetitive physical labor.
He currently works with video, installation, painting, music, performance, drawing, digital art, and photography.
