Throughout my career, my work has primarily focused on the grotesque by means of distortion, transformation, dark humor, absurdity, contrasting color palettes, and the play between positive and negative space. In this way, the grotesque represents the in-between--the blurring of the borders between fact and fiction, the known and the unknown, reality and dreams, and the beautiful and the ugly. The grotesque harmoniously converges and marries imagery that typically does not, nor should ever belong together. It is the hazy blurring of reality, the weakening of borders by way of violating the codes of logic. The grotesque exists outside the boundaries of our sensibilities, equal to the uncanny, the sublime, and the horrific.
