Toy Art Gallery is proud to present "New Toys for Melancholics", a solo show by Pop Surrealist sculptor and philosopher Gabriels. The opening reception takes place from 7PM to 11PM on May 6th 2011 with Paolo Gabrielli in attendance. The show will run through June 3rd 2011.
From the artist:
Let it be clear: these are not sculptures, but toys and more precisely prototypes of Toys for Melancholics. They aspire to the industrial production on a large scale and to the indefinite propagation, in proportion to the planetary diffusion of the anguishastic-desperative Weltanschauung and of the consequent – very legitimate, although not absolutely incontrovertible – propensity to suicideness. In this sense, our Toys for Melancholics scrupulously respect all the standards of global melancholy quality in a petrified primeval landscape, addressing courageously to a public of adults, kiddies and lithopaedia.
