Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles
October 29th – December 3rd, 2022
These new artworks show our fragile nature as humans. I blend the childlike and innocent with the grotesque by painting porcelain toys that become biological beings, sometimes wounded, disturbing to look at, despite the adorable look of the figures. Elements of the grotesque and the cute break down, pulling the viewer between these opposing poles. Just like in life, you can see a duality in these works. Nothing is completely black or white. You can’t have the sweet without the bitter.
These works reveal my fears, are a way to fight against constraints of tradition, to seek power, independence, creativity, spirituality and magic.
