Original gesso sculpture series with indefinite number, all designed, sculpted, hand painted and signed by Kokimoto. Each MATRYO$KA is unique (one of a kind) and was created through a handmade process. Therefore, features on figures may vary slightly.
The idea behind MATRYO$KA series revolves around traditional image and contemporary form of classical doll. I grow up surrounded by Russian culture, which left a lasting mark on my work as an artist. One of my favorite objects on influence of this time is Matryoshka, also known as a Russian doll, consisting to a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside another. In my sculptures I am changing the basic characteristics of traditional Matryoshka. Keeping only the external form I’m creating a new character with the same name, with one little change. Instead “sh” in original name (“Matryoshka”) I’m using dollar sign (“$”) for two reasons: First this sign looks just like the two letters on each other (SH=$) and second to attach western contemporary type of eastern traditional idea for Russian doll.
