small squares part 3


in asakusa we went on the roof of a less glamorous department store. this one had a playland for the kids. all the coin operated slightly used but still colorful robots, cars, ships were such a find.


it's too bad i don't have the sound that this one made for you....

where robots go to retire

there also was a section of broken toys. so sad, but also so lovely

fushini inari [polaroid version]

this was from the 1000 tori shrine outside of kyoto.

and now i'm off. mylissa from little bird is up here for the weekend and she's coming by the studio to preview the show. and if you are in the LA area.... mark you calendar... October 13th - that's the date of the opening. i hope to see people there [or i will be sad and silly looking standing lonely in front of my art]

wendy said… that the polaroids seem like they come from an undefined time period.

Broken and discarded things always, for me, carry a certain beauty to them. And sadness, too. I love these polas of yours, and, if I could, I'd be there on the 13th with many, many bells.
take care, g xo

I promise if I'm anywhere near your opening I'll swing on by. The chances of that are pretty slim, so instead I'll just send you the very best wishes. xo lj
PS Love these photos.

and you know if i was anywhere near l.a. I'd be at the show with bells on. :) best of luck!

I love old fashion coin-operated machines, aren't they adorable and so full of character? So lovely and nostalgic, just like tin-toys. Wish I could be there to see your show in person, good luck with everything!
clara said…
Oh I love old toys! They were certainly fun to play with.
I hope you have a fantastic show! Wish I could go to LA. :-)
