Cute and Comfortable
Doctoral Exhibition
July 2013
The University of Texas at Dallas

The works in Cute and Comfortable investigate the tensions of space, both physical and temporal, and the liminal zones between fine and decorative art, masculine and feminine, cute and threatening. The pieces incorporate fine art media alongside found objects and the materials of domestic construction, and employ a palette normally reserved for commercial imagery. Themes of nostalgia, adventure, isolation, and spatial dysphoria link the works, which span the artist’s graduate career at UT-Dallas.
