This will be my part of the "LOVE MOVEMENT" show...
I have been invited by my good friend Jeremy Brautman to participate in a special show for newly married Japaneses artists Nao and Shin Tanaka. Each have designed their very own vinyl toy for designers to customize.
The show titled "LOVE MOVEMENT" is described as followes…
"As a recently married couple, Shin and Nao have been pondering the lack of love in the world. LOVE MOVEMENT is their way to spread love. The pair of toys will share your message with everyone who sees the show in person and online. We are all incredibly excited to showcase the diverse works.
LOVE MOVEMENT opens at SUPERFROG Gallery on the top floor of New People in San Francisco on Saturday, December 11th, 2010. SUPERFROG is a terrific space, and participating artists are invited to think big and send 2D work to accompany their 3D toy art. Shin and Nao are coming in from Tokyo for the opening reception, which will also feature their original toy art, large sculptures, animation and music by the duo."
So Ive been pondering what to do with these two toys for the show. I thought to myself, what describes "love movement" more then "makin' babies"? well nothing. So for this piece that i will be titling "Egg & Incubator" im going to fashion our little bear friend into a bear shaped egg, then im going to sculpt a small fetal bear baby inside our robot incubator. The bear brings life and the robot provides. Kinda like life you think?
