Stranger Things Have Happened….

Artist Statement

I attempt to expose the animal within. Much of that which is assumed to be chaotic and incomprehensible within the human paradigm can be clarified through the observation that we, like all organisms are bound first and foremost by natural law. Over time, civil responsibility has ordered a physical detachment from nature, however a deeper mental architecture remains intact. It is this power play with which we struggle internally. I take interest in formulating a parody, amplifying an analysis, and offering visual depiction of this all at once grotesque, lovely, and hilarious production.

Sasha Darling from Belljar says, “We really want to have a unique event that exemplifies the atmosphere here at BellJar that has made our shop a local favorite in just one short year. Whether it’s an out of print book, handmade soap, a lovely one-of-a-kind necklace, or a two headed taxidermy baby chick, it’s all about finding something beautiful and unique that you can cherish.”
