  • About the Exhibition:
    In my new collection, ‘Daydreams and Nightmares From Beyond Toyland’, I've expanded my body of work beyond dolls to include monsters and creatures of childhood nightmares. Their appearance reveals the importance of making friends with your inner monsters as they sometimes aren't as frightening as they appear.

    I've applied several new techniques to my sculptures in this series; one is the use of gold and silver leafing. The precious metals represent my idea of the treasured and golden, but also the fragile nature of life. My subjects are wide eyed, somber, innocent, youthful, precocious, and mischievous and represent the continual exploration of the carefree nature and wonder of childhood.~Sheri DeBow
