    How do we adequately describe the sensations that lie deep within the membranes of the body when in such a state Medical technology advancements quell diminish or make bearable but never completely eliminate physical and psychological pain In my installation With a Twitch and a Grimace I have transformed microscopic elements into macroscopic objects that relate to mechanical and organic structures that may lie beneath the surface of the skin

    am examining the close proximity of beauty and the grotesque When looking at another we are always comparing our body to that of the other Are we beautiful ugly or somewhere in between what determines beauty The mysterious geography of the interiors and exteriors of our bodies and that of nature have a very similar juxtaposition It is this unique way in which I find paradoxes in nature and the body and how they distort control and finally conquer or submit to a disease or parasite In using a broad range of materials I evoke a sense of beauty and that of a raw grotesqueness living in harmony With this paradox I ask my audience to examine their own aesthetics values and determine how they might be attracted yet repulsed simultaneously Creating a dialog that engages and heightens the senses along with individual gut reactions SONNET 94 They that have power to hurt and will do none That do not do the thing they most do show Who moving others are themselves as stone Unmoved cold and to temptation slow They rightly do inherit heaven s graces And husband nature s riches from expense They are the lords and owners
