The motivation for my “Toy Stories” series comes from personal experiences and responses to world events. Using toys as subject matter is intended to create a connection with the viewer through the shared experience of play.
The images depicted may be somewhat disturbing despite the innocent nature of the plastic playthings. There might be a sense of dis-ease coinciding with a feeling of nostalgia and fun. I hope that as a viewer, you will walk away with experiences ranging from joy to discomfort. What is important is that emotion is evoked in some form.
