He has developed the prosthetic make-up effects for Barney since 1991 and in 2004 he made his directorial debut with the surrealistic film Skinned Deep, which he also wrote and produced.

Mathew Barney is an American artist who works in sculpture, photography, drawing, and film. His epic Cremaster Cycle, explores the process of creation through sculpture and video in five feature-length films. These films are imaginative and brilliant and examine the transcendence of physical limitations within an interdisciplinary art practice.
