Opening Reception for Joyland Toyland by Catherine Slye

  • The Walter Art Gallery 6435 East Thomas Road Scottsdale, AZ, 85251 United States (map)

The Joyland Toyland series explores emotional themes of solitude, being in the night, and relationships - each set within a deliberate colorspace, allowing color to have its own weight and influence. Slye collected over 40 vintage and antique toys, many of them are made of celluloid - a pre-plastic material used before WWII. She chose toys with interesting faces and clever eyes, ones that would catch light allowing her to play with their expressions.
