Christy DeHoog creates worlds that are filled with buzzing contraptions, softly rendered buildings, and abstracted worldly forms. Her paintings create arenas for open-ended narratives and relationships between organic, breathing machines and their fanciful environments. Often times DeHoog arranges her characters and settings to reflect the tension of opposites. She explains, "Playing with the attraction of opposites interests me: beauty/ugliness, captivity/escape, macrocosm/microcosm, whimsy/danger."
