Toy Gods- 02.28.06
Toys are Gods. We knew that since we were kids (and if not, you lived a deprived childhood). Blythe traveled the “real” world, but Bryan McCarty brings figurines and barbies to a level of real world glam that she never reached. He literally breathes life and creates mysetry with his images of some of my favorite adult swim characters, dolls, and other toys. You know they have fixed features and emotions, yet he taps into some bizarre world that makes his images playfully personal. WOW. just wow. Now if only my local cafe would give up their horrible photography exhibition and have these images to mesmerize customers.
