"Things Could Be Worse," 2007

Jim Torok is schizophrenic, completely insane, and loves his mother. His one saving grace is his keen sense of humor. Torok is known for two bodies of work—both based on acute observation, but that is just the beginning. In one, he makes cartoon-style storyboard drawings that range from self-doubt to political correctness. These narratives are simultaneously hilarious and sobering, innocently optimistic and cynical. The other consists of his small, skillfully rendered portraits. This exhibition of new work will bring together both sides of Torok’s split personality.
