Sedrick Chisom (b. 1989, Philadelphia, PA) is a painter and writer who lives and works in New York. His paintings reference the racialized idioms of Victorian Fantasy illustration, and use the romantic landscape as a site where the apocalyptic narratives of white supremacy, Christianity, and climate change intersect — a scenario in which most of the built environment has been obliterated and transformed into a toxic, hallucinatory wasteland.
