Vertebrate Vanguard, a group of mixed-media works and drawings, represents Nathan Porterfield’s output between early 2016 and the present. Informed by an ongoing, ever-changing set of stimuli, this body of work peers into the absurd and the hierarchy of existence. Humanoid characters sit, absurdly fixed in portraits that seem to simultaneously proclaim their status and display their flaws; each a paradox, each a question and an answer; each a member of the Vertebrate Vanguard.
