In my work I am a mad scientist. I am informed by numerous mythologies, esoteric writings, schlock humor, and the abject figure. Through the creation of statues I refer to as "Dumps", I explore a liminal state where animal, human figures meet abstraction. My love of cartoons and the drawn world influences the color and texture of these statues, portraits, and possible vessels. Currently, I find it exciting when these creatures and forms present themselves in a classical statue or portraiture setting. My hope is to address issues of mutation, toxicity, and wealth in art through these creatures who are cosmic, yet humanistic, invoking laughter and malaise in the viewer, while providing a mirror to society.
