I straddle themes and mediums just as I straddle the extremes of the body. Portraiture grew into the multi-dimensional, transmuting the literal depiction into an internal dissection or dismemberment. Objects became metaphorical representations, often disjointed and broken. Through fragmentation, a visceral representation of an internal state appeared. Masks, seemingly innocuous, were deceptively dangerous; puppets, exposed and imperfect, were sublimely intact; animation and film brought vitality to the surface yet kept the bloodline flush.
