My name is Jeffery Saddoris and I have deep-dive conversations with creative people about what they do and why they do it.

My mixed-media paintings are rooted in materials and inspired by artists like Robert Rauschenberg and Cy Twombly. My work combines multiple layers of chroma, emulsion transfers, ephemera, and found objects to create both literal and narrative depth.
