Summary Sinister within the Sweet is a tower of pallets embedded with the artworks the author created during the course of their studies at California State University, Northridge. The works have been reused or altered, but they still bear attributes of their earlier forms. The illusion of the "real" or human-scale space and the meaning of "home" sustain the author's aesthetic and conceptual inquiry. The work examines the underlying resonance of childhood: limitlessness, inventiveness, mystery, imagination, adventure, and possibility. A variety of approaches, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, and photography, have enabled the author to explore the act of playing that has become an important process in uncovering the metaphors of home and self, when fantasy meets reality. Within each layer of the stacked pallets, the author reconstructs traces of previous work in order to create mysterious worlds hidden within the darkness.
