As children, we are encouraged to play, explore and even fail. As adults that encouragement becomes lesser. We are encouraged to keep busy, interact less, and ignore fantasy. My work allows the adolescent in us to reappear. It provides fantasy without shame or guilt,  but with joy and happiness. It allows us to leave logic behind and engage in the present. The daily mundane drag is replaced with pure joyfulness. The boundary between bodily life and the field of art is obliterated. The interaction with the work removes the daily grind and makes room for the world of make-believe. My work provides a space for repressed play to overflow and, in turn, gives the opportunity for unification of humanity through the experience.
