If you’re in NYC (or just need a reason to visit) MF Gallery will having their annual Toy Show in November (check back for dates! ), in which my dolls will be appearing. Some of the incredible talent amassed for the show include Sheri Debow, whose wild and fun creations shared gallery space with GFS bunnies for the “Evil Bunny Show” this past June in LA, as well as Jenny Alcantara.
Some images of my latest creations which will be on exhibition and for sale at Kris Waldherr’s gallery, “Art and Words”. Created for the “Fairy Tales: From the Dark Wood to Happily Ever After” show, these guys were inspired by Christina Rossetti’s “Goblin Market” poem. Ranging from 6″ to 11″, they were created using Puppen Fimo and Super Sculpey, fabric, faux fur, batting, wire armature, glass eyes and acrylic paints. Sculpting these critters was alot of fun, though I think the Snerk brothers were by far my favorite to create. I also had a blast sculpting the tiny fruits…which came as a surprise to me. Believing I would go crazy creating such tiny objects, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were a delight to sculpt and paint. If you’re in NYC, be sure to swing by and check out the show (opening night 10/23 from 7pm-10pm)…it promises to be fabulous, with breathtaking fairytale art housed in a cozy, charming gallery.
Kris Waldherr, illustrator, story-teller and gallery owner, will be once again opening her studios to another fabulous exhibition, this time focusing on fairy tales. The title of the exhibition, “Fairy Tales: From the Dark Woods to Happily Ever After” explores both the more sinister side to everyone’s favorite tales, as well as the joyous. From the press release:
“Kris Waldherr, owner and curator of the Brooklyn studio-gallery, says “This exhibit goes way beyond Disney to explore the rich complexity of fairy tales. I’m very excited to bring together such an illustrious group of artists for it.””
I, along with many other talented artists, will be showcasing my newest works inspired by the “Goblin Market” by Christina Rossetti. To read more of the press release and explore the participating artists’ bio and works, go to here.
This promises to be a fun and exciting event, so if you’re in NYC, stop by!
