“It’s childish” has been used by the mature to demean validity. Fundamental to our existence and our capacity for playfulness, wonder and vulnerability — is at the heart of childishness. The child, unacknowledged, takes place in all seriousness at all levels of society. My work aims to question sophistication as a consequential force. I explore human emotion, humor and imagination to invite reconnection to the child inside of ourselves.
