 Artist Statement

Clowns are comical entertainers that wear traditional and exaggerated makeup that bring happiness to people’s lives. In my case, clowns are a childhood nightmare. Stemming from such movies as IT and Saw, these once loveable human beings haunt me to this day. In response to these horrible torments, I created a series of videos that help represent my daily struggle with these monsters.

Using cinematic views and comedy, I show how ridiculous my nightmares have evolved. The role of my scenery, in which I have chosen my place of employment, adds to the creepiness and loneliness that I feel everyday when working there. I am hoping at the end of my adventure, my coulrophobia will finally diminish and I am able to cope with my enemy, the clown.
