My concentration is an unconventional representation of the seven deadly sins—to show the sins that humans are capable of committing through the use of outlandish, eerie, and whimsical expressionism. I created busts of ghoulish caricatures, each on their own personal pedestal, symbolizing a certain a sin through expression, posture, style, and color. Each work has its own unusual expression and style to depict the personality of the specific sin, giving the viewer a glimpse of the kind of person who may commit such an act. The pieces alone supply the viewer with a sense of amusement, but as a group they help establish (through form and color) the boundaries that we as humans define as sinful and dark.
