For her Los Angeles show in July, Tara McPherson has created this little creature. In her usual style, she has included her pink mountain and balloon motifs with close attention to detail. The piece was designed for the Kokeshi 2009 show at the Japanese American National Museum which will showcase its history and the transformation of the Kokeshi folk toy into the contemporary pieces of art produced today. If you’re bored, swing over to this site and design your own Kakeshi.
