Zeus of the Grotto 1, 30X30, Acrylic on canvas






I learned about the meaning of the word grotesque. It is art in caves or similar that is scaring and gruesome. I am fascinated with the art of David Gilhooly who has food with leaves. I have chef boyardee noodles in a cave like backdrop with interwined leaf motifs.A God for me can be a scary concept. I think of this character like a manic Zeus.

Wild Child series

Growing up as a teenager, I always felt I wasn't the ideal Mormon. I wasn't smily or perky. I was an angry teenager who read too much Bukowski. Nevertheless I still was a good kid. To this day, I am a little rough around the edges. This series is inspired by the French film The Wild Child.
