Will Boone draws inspiration from a breadth of cultural and subcultural sources. These include movies, music, industrial manufacturing, conspiracy theories, and the iconographies of Texas. Since his early days designing concert posters and T-shirts for rock bands, Boone has both reflected and subverted the tropes of DIY and lo-fi in his work.

His fascination with horror movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), as well as the rapid, low-budget quality of their production, can be felt across his multimedia work. Boone’s sculptures and paintings, which often resemble set pieces and cinematic tableaus, are an exercise in nostalgia, highlighting the mythologies of American culture.

Boone will be in conversation about his work’s particular relationship to Texas with the Nasher’s outgoing Senior Manager of Communications and International Programs, Lucia Simek.
