Both of these quasi-portraits have to deal with my ongoing fascination/repulsion of physical and emotional trauma, body imperfections and distortion, and humor in art. I strive to find a way for all of these ideas to coexist in my paintings and sculptures. I hope that the viewer is slightly taken aback by the image, but then gets a chuckle out of it too.
