Curator’s Comments:

To say I’m enjoyed your work each time it has appeared on the site may be somewhat of a mischaracterization.  The drawings are gorgeously unsettling, visceral and brilliantly unnerving.  Personal Passenger may not feature the twisted veins and eyeballs featured in Tugga War, but the fantasy-composite figure arguably delights in oddity.  I was attracted to the mechanical flying creatures, and was reminded of commenting on Caliban’s Collection a number of years ago, which isolated similar rainbow-hued insects on a stark black ground. In Passenger, the insects take flight, and either herald the arrival (or pester) the small creature within the larger corporeal body. Fully articulated, the small figure appears to emerge from a womb like opening entirely formed.  The treatment of the figure and interior of the (questionably) female body in black and white values separates it visually and conceptually from the full color space. The sense of “otherness” is pushed to the extreme in this distinction. The many eyes at the top of the mother’s neck, stretching to the very top of the picture plane, only caught my attention when I took in all of the other dizzying elements. For me, it reinforced the idea of a human-hybrid mother bee.  And while these distortions are surreal, there’s a beauty in the startling scene. I would enjoy seeing how your studio practice has evolved, and hope you will consider posting new work to the site.
