July 8-21 2022 I had the pleasure of showing my body of work entitled Joy?! at the Paul Elia Gallery in Hamilton.

JOY?! 24×36 acrylic on panel

Using realistic imagery infused with absurdity, this series conveys a humorous look at life through the ailment of the psyche, demonstrating the connection between mental illness and the smiling face presented to the world. Joy?! is the parody of an outwardly happy appearance and the fragility of the self underneath.
