Historical Context:
"The current work presented begins with the detection of curiously staged stories, events, or notions I have come upon. Anecdotal forms, symbols, and imagery are the flesh best suited to both reveal and veil the humor and misfortune of everyday tales. We're all familiar with children's nursery rhymes whose sound is innocent enough, but whose themes are quite darkly disturbing, salaciously satirical, or deliciously droll. I splice, reanimate, and dress-up the various appearances of the immature, the highbrow and the forgotten. " - Excerpt from Tim Fisher's Artist Statement
