GOGOS SMALL PLASTIC TOYS
I painted this series of small plastic toys which were taken from a larger collection of various humanoid plastic forms which resemble people and or animals.
The toys were bought as a fad for my son at the time , and translated into a painting because my time in the studio was being limited, curtailed by other responsibilities. I set myself the task of painting a GoGo in one sitting .
They represent an almost an infinite and yet random manifestation of the anthropomorphic. This has a direct relation to the variations of the human face and the infinite variety of male genitalia and therefore related to the knitting in the Imperial blanket.
Again I felt as in the Perfect Life Series that these paintings represented the perfect object of desire for the child, a manifestation of infantile desire.
