Matryoshka dolls (also known as a Russian nesting dolls, are a set of wooden dolls decreasing in size, often placed one inside another. The name "matryoshka" literally "little matron", is a diminutive form of Russian female first name "Matryona" or “Matriosha".
We at Chicago Truborn have teamed up with local artist (Sub)Urban Warrior to co-curate a show near and dear to our hearts. We are constantly brainstorming and dreaming up new, innovative, concepts for group shows. As fans of themed group shows ourselves, we wanted to give our dedicated collectors and supporters something they don’t see often while at the same time maintaining a sense of logical application for the artists.
30 artists have each been given TWO Matryoshka doll templates on which they were asked to go crazy!! This well rounded group of painters, sculptors, and mixed media artists have brought their A game with styles ranging the gamut. Expect traditional and non traditional takes on this familiar figure. There's only one way to describe this show...."STACKED".
