Bad Gok is a character from my daughter's bad dreams. He eats kittens and she makes him Good Gok with carrots. For this series, I wanted a fairy tale feel and created filagree edges on cardboard, which I painted with oil and gold paint.

I don't see truly original art every day, which is why I commend Jennifer Kiss for this exquisitely unique piece of work.

In this fairy tale, there is danger, mystery, cuteness, and even a sense of domesticity. There is a clear way to appease the beast (feeding it carrots) but it takes courage. These concepts fit into the literary framework of Magical Realism — viewers must accept certain facts about a strange world as if they were their own.

With this in mind, it would be fantastic to have an entire series devoted to this realm, where things are like dreams and dreams are the basis of reality. Well done!

Thank you! I did a series and had a solo show at UCSD for it. I have a video and some clips on my Instagram. Thanks again!
