Dressed Up and No Place To Go, 2008
TAODA gallery show “All Dolled Up”
Soft Dolls and Animals, Jan. 2009
As I have often said, I am fascinated by gesture. I loved the
way the teenage boys used to drape themselves on our furniture.
Now they have grown into young men, but my mind, they will remain
those bored, slouching souls, no matter how dressed up they are.
This is one of my smaller dolls, just sly
of 10” seated.
His cut-away tuxedo is silk and his shoes polished glove leather.
The chair is made out of very fine leather and in his hand he holds
his Bang and Olufsen remote control, in search of some sort of
entertainment to salvage the evening. I’ve used a magnet
in the seat that holds the guy securely, not that he has any place
to go anyway.
