cute potential

Thursday at our first meeting, Hernan Diaz Alonso made the argument that grotesque is the opposite of cute. But, I have always seen a fine line between grotesque and cute, with plain as their opposite... what do you think? The relationship between pleasure and pain, with numbness as its opposite might be a parallel? Maybe these generalisations are not useful... but I love to generalize and link things, so here is one more: Maybe if something is Grotesque and small it has more cute potential and if it is Grotesque and large it is more likely to be Sublime like a rugged mountain range .
