Dolls: they can be creepy and they can be cool, depending on your perspective. For Korean-born artist Byung-Kyu Do Dolls are his medium of choice. There is no denying that dolls do conjure varying images and experiences from my youth, so I could relate to the theme of Do’s latest exhibit, Childhood Memories, up now at Emmanuel Fremin Gallery. We accidentally stumbled upon this exhibit on last night’s art crawl and I was very smitten by Do’s large photographs of baby dolls, some of which you can see below.

Are they creepy…or are they cool? Only you can decide for yourself, but I liked them. You can read more about Byung-Kyu Do and his inspiration for Childhood Memories at This Link. There are tons of galleries in the same building as Emmanuel Fremin Gallery so be sure to do some exploring floor to floor if you come to see this small but fascinating exhibit. You never know what you might discover!

Childhood Memories By Do Byung Kyu Will be on Exhibit Through November 3rd, 2012 at the Emmanuel Fremin Gallery, located at 547 W. 27th Street, Suite 508, New York City.
