In my work inanimate objects contain human body parts; Ghosts, Gods and Magicians help summon your mind’s new understanding of your relationship to your body and your home. We have the ability to use our bodies without thinking about it, and this is some kind of dark magic. Just as the body decays with use, so do our possessions. Somehow your new television or stove has become an antique, and your once young body has become this strange box that fights your commands. My work is a hyper exaggeration of one’s experience living a body or a home. I am inspired by cartoony magical realism, cultural reference and religious satire, dark humor and a common theme of inanimate objects being alive.
