Abstract: "My recent work explores the duality of beauty and the grotesque coexisting simultaneously within a singular sculptural form. I seek to make work that paradoxically seduces the viewer with the promise of beauty even as it repels in its cultivation of the unnatural and the perverse -- a sculptural elegance that takes its inspiration from the aversive feelings inspired by biological malformation. My work holds beauty and grotesqueness in uneasy balance."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
