I went to an engaging art show last week with a friend. It’s called This is Not a Toy and it’s at the Design Exchange in Toronto. The show presents designer art toys that are “at the intersection of fine art, marketing, pop culture, product and graphic design.” The sculptures felt both somber and playful to me and I feel that is part of their strength. Here’s some images of the work. All artwork is copyrighted by the artists.
I have made visual art works all my life. Arts of May shows some of my explorations in different media and the inspiration I take from other artists and works. An earlier blog, of humans and nature, concentrates on my photographs of natural places that help my spirit. View all posts by artsofmay
