The Stranger Factory Project Room will be filled to capacity this weekend with the brilliant craftmanship of Jen Musatto (Them Dollz). We have been bringing you numerous updates over the past few weeks on what will be at the show, and we realized we haven’t even grazed the surface of all the work. With that in mind, how about another preview?
Meet the ever so lovely Josette. Now you may fall for her mesmerizing blue eyes but behind those babies lie many secrets. She is a sinister gal, but shouldn’t let that dissuade you. She is dressed to impress and break many hearts in the process. Look out boys, if you are in Albuquerque this Friday for the opening, but don’t fret too much because Jen will be on hand to keep her in check.
Jen Musatto’s exhibit opens in the project room December 6 at 6pm. Jen will be attending to talk about her creations and meet with all in attendance.
Are you ready to give your eyeballs and plush heart a much needed jump for today? We have not one, but two, reveals from Jen Musatto‘s show this December in Stranger Factory’s Project Room. Grab your best attire, and look at Them Dollz below.
Up first is Abel Pettymore who sits dapper and coy with his long mane and top hat. Don’t let this gent fool you, behind those sullen eyes and bow tie is a true badass. Only badasses wear stripes like that (like Beetlejuice).
Not necessarily his partner in crime is Iris Von Straus. Iris prides herself on her beautiful, lush hair and fast living lifestyle. Able to put all patrons of the dance floor to shame, Iris’s version of the Charleston and Shimmy drop all the jaws. Look out, Albuquerque!
For more on Jen Musatto and Them Dollz, see Jen’s Project Room exhibit at Stranger Factory December 6th – 29th, with an opening reception on Friday, December 6th from 6 – 9 PM.
Jen Musatto creates “Them Dollz”, a line of handcrafted plush dolls that evoke a broken and gloomy image of childhood where innocence and the longing for companionship take a most unusual form.
Musatto’s dolls are immediately unsettling, but give the viewer room to slowly bond with them over time. Made from a combination of new and found materials, Musatto’s “Them Dollz” figures are each wholly unique and provide a fresh, if slightly creepy, voice in modern plush art.
Jen’s Project Room exhibit will run December 6th – 29th, with an opening reception on Friday, December 6th from 6 – 9 PM.
