soft sculptures 2004
These grossly enlarged toys are examples of my response to a series of small ‘Disney’ characters offered as free gifts with so called `Happy Meals’.
I chose to use fabrics normally for domestic use, curtains, tablecloths and upholstery to emphasise the fact that, not so long ago, toys were made in the home from offcuts. Only recently have toys been used to entice children and their parents to eat in fast food outlets.
