The exhibition Through the Toy Shop and Behind the Curtain opened at the Huntley Art Gallery in January of 2020. Due to the Covid19 pandemic, it has remained closed to the public since.
Gina M.'s solo exhibition Through the Toy Shop and Behind the Curtain is a full-scale immersive space installation combining both whimsical, found-object assemblages and trompe l'oeil ceramics. The exhibition is an "open toy chest" of nostalgia, whimsical fun, and ironic humor that gently leads the viewer to a darker repository of coded narratives and thoughtful metaphor, masking the gloomy overtones of desolation and melancholy. Her life-like sculptures are made of high-fired clay, oxide washes, encaustic paint, and found objects.
Despite the closure, you can still view the show through a video tour here!
