"I was raised up where them wolves at…" - Future
JC: What images keep you company in the space where you work?JH: Since I have painted on almost everything in my space I am surrounded by my thoughts and ideas…
JC: What was the first piece of art that really mattered to you?JH: The first piece that really mattered to me was the first piece I purchased. It’s an amazing abstract 6ft piece by my friend/artist Daniel Galas. I will keep that piece forever. It’s beautiful. Deep and rich…
JC: What is your favourite title of an artwork?JH: All of my works are “UNTITLED” so I don’t really have a favourite title as of yet.. I’m sure one day I will do a show with titles but for right now I have so much work to get out I can’t stop to think about titles…
JC: What do you wish you knew?JH: I wish i knew how to relax.
JC: What should change?JH: There’s so much that needs to change. I would like to see people help each other more.
JC: What should stay the same?JH: I wish that when you first fall in love with someone. I wish that feeling stays the same forever.
JC: What could you imagine doing if you didn’t do what you do?JH: I really can’t even imagine doing anything else. Oh.. maybe an astronaut.. yeah, that’s dope.
JC: What music are you listening to? JH: I listen to a bit of everything I guess… I do like Drake, Nipsey Hussle, XX, Hov, Ronnie James, HooliganRadGuitar…
JC: What are you reading?JH: I am usually either reading The Alchemist or John Wooden… Both those books give me something different every time I read them.
JC: What do you like the look of?JH: I really like the curves of a woman. It’s my greatest inspiration.
JC: What is art for?JH: Art that is considered important is ultimately used to define the emotions, struggles, victories and love of that generation.

No photoshop here, guys. Mosse brings a discontinued military surveillance film to this situation, representing an intangible conflict with a medium that registers an invisible spectrum of infrared light, and was originally designed for camouflage detection. The resulting imagery, shot on 16mm infrared film by cinematographer Trevor Tweeten, renders the jungle war zone in a disorienting psychedelic palette.
