I’m an irreverent jokester with a penchant for getting mixed up in comic situations, both intentionally and accidentally. Case in point: once when I was pulled over, I confessed to insignificant things I did when I was ten years old under the heat of interrogation.
I am always out of the loop when it comes to pop culture, and instead have pursued a life in search of the strange, remote, unfamiliar, and avant-garde.
I believe that there is honesty in absurdity, that the grotesque can be alluring, that there is drama in our stillest of moments.
For me, the greatest thing art can achieve is neither the beautiful, nor the sublime, but the exuberant: a wild and ecstatic sense of energy that comes about when an artist is not afraid to take chances and boldly commits him-or-herself to a radical vision, even in a sociopolitical environment that often seems wholly unsuited for such a venture.
