The “Teddy Bear” is within the general concept of the exhibition “Full of Emptiness” by Paolo Pedroni, which represents the dream, and you could also say, the will of a child.The three artworks from which were developed the toys identify as the craving of possession from a child’s harmless and simple whim. An adult transforms itself into something that can take over as an uncontainable craving.
“The will in creating the three paintings in 3D was initiated with my wanting to form them into reality. Amplifying their meaning to transform them into a fetish, giving them a physical shape makes them into a warning. It reminds us that even the most innocent desires can turn into monsters.” – Paolo Pedroni
