GALLERY TARGET present Crying Dog, Russell Maurice’s first solo show in a Japanese Gallery.
The title refers to a surreal phenomenon of ‘crying dog figurines’ that emerged in the 1970s and 80s and which exists in many variations. Attempts to solve the mystery of its origin or meaning have been impossible. Maurice has merged this mysterious archetype with his own complex array of stylistic and thematic influences.
Working on a wide mix of formats, sculpture, painting, animation cel’s, holographic elements and light-boxes, each of these will be used to convey Maurice’s universe, his alchemic, cosmic-comic approach, his own version of Comic Abstraction.
The exhibition will also celebrate the launch of a ceramic edition Crying Dog sculpture produced with Medicom.
