My showing of JOY?!, opened on July 8, at the Paul Elia Gallery here in Hamilton Ontario. It runs until July 31.

Here is a link to a 3D virtual tour.

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.
