"I'm not one for pining down precisely what these things are. I may sometimes give them names to pull them closer to the realm of our consensual reality, but I don't wish to cut off the viewers interpretation of what they are by dictating that they are one particular thing. This play between the viewer's imagination and my own is an important component as the ambiguity requires the viewer to invest more of themselves into the work.
Personally it's the notion of the grotesque I find of most interest, I find the idea of the seemingly impossible way it clashes, opposing emotional responses within the same visual signifier, fascinating."
