Jerome Skiscim is a visual/aural artist residing in Washington DC. He works in a variety of mediums including digital and alternative process photography, chemigrams, painting, mixed media, video and sound. He likes to explore the effect that meditation, yoga, and ritual has on altering consciousness and influencing creativity. Dreams, synesthesia, mesmerism and collective consciousness help feed his exploration of the abstract and surreal. Jerome is a member of the artist subscription group Project Dispatch, a permanent member of The Postcard Collective and has been exhibited in numerous group shows and recently had his first solo exhibition. He was chosen as one of nine artists for the District of Columbia Arts Center two-year development program Sparkplug 4.0. He has been involved in numerous conventional and experimental music ensembles and also restores antique stringed instrument bows for musicians, collectors and museums.
