Clowns have always fascinated me. There's something magical, mysterious and courageous about clowns from the classic jester and party clown to the circus and rodeo clown. So it's no surprise that I would paint clowns at one point. The Sinister Circus is a parody of our world as I saw it around the turn of our current century. From politics, pop culture and societal norms to technology, recreation and evolving markets. We live in the Sinister Circus but are we the clowns or the audience being led along by them?
