July 8-21 2022 I had the pleasure of showing my body of work entitled Joy?! at the Paul Elia Gallery in Hamilton.
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.
I was commissioned to do this painting by my friend Raf for his friend Sara. She lost her brother and now she has a Blue Jay hanging around her house who’s always calling to her to for attention. Perhaps it’s more than just coincidence?
