Transitional Object No. 11, Imaginary Friend Soft Sculpture

$6,250

About

Gabriela Noelle welcomes us into an alluring and whimsical realm with the collection Imaginary Friends. Inspired by the subconscious of a child’s creative and inventive mind, the collection reveals the imagination to posses more power than concepts of reality instilled and defined in adulthood. Her series Transitional Objects, is titled to reference the term introduced by psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott which labels items to which young children develop strong attachments, exploring the idea that our dreams or “make-believe” can manifest in actual, tangible forms. As Gabriela Noelle explains: “perhaps ‘Imaginary Friends’ reveals an alternate dimension where these creatures exist yet can only be seen when liberated from the conditioning and doubts of adulthood.” The friendly, amorphous beings, observing with wide-eyed innocence, embody the unselfconscious.
