Tanner Christmas draws on the critique of artistic and social conventions through the disruption and redistribution of material, narrative and processes. The artist employs opposition while progressively creating order and disorder in rearrangement of narrative by destroying the old. Through the process of making, autonomous entities diverge from established reality, sequentially creating alternate timelines in a state of flux.
