Russian Nesting dolls ( or Matryoshka dolls ) combine beauty and intrigue. They lead two very separate lives, one as little statues on display, the other as interactive toys; each one opening up revealing a smaller one inside, creating a family of pear shaped characters. The idea for this show resulted from the discovery that the dolls could be purchased in their raw wood state, unpainted. The challenge was to encourage artists who typically work 2- dimensionally to cross over to 3-dimensional work. The artists selected to participate in the show were chosen based on their artistic merit and enthusiasm. I also looked for work that lends itself to the ideas surrounding Matryoshka dolls, such as story telling, and creating art in series. They range from commercial illustrators to fine artists, to graffiti writers, describing a wide range of styles and ideas.
