Cute & Creepy
"An impressive and valuable catalog. . . . you can't resist gawking . . . Lush descriptions and scholarly references bring validity to an art style that in the past has been criticized as being kitschy or lowbrow."—Gabrielle Reed, ARLIS, 2012 July/August 2012
"The grotesque is not a thing in itself. It's not a genre or trope or an 'ism' that can be qualified by a time period. It is an operation, a process that occurs when one is caught in between a moment of humor and horror, or horror and beauty—held in perfect suspension so that neither overrides the other. We are left in momentary paralysis, unsure of what to think, unable to look away."—Nancy E. Hightower
