Voltz Clarke Gallery artist Stephanie Patton states that humor plays an important role in her work. Patton expressed that she often uses it as a device to bring attention to more critical issues. Over the course of her artistic career Patton has  found that creating humorous objects often breaks down barriers and allows for the beginning of an open and genuine dialog between my art, the audience and herself. In this way, humor transforms my personal experience into something universal.
