Toy Box, Tool Box celebrates creation, which occurs all around us constantly. Through a progression of interactions between children’s toys and real world industrial objects, Paterson draws into question the difference between work and play, suggesting that this difference is simply defined by the attitude of those participating. In all her art, Paterson maintains that images can be messages from a source deep within ourselves, however playful they may be.
This project is part of FABnyc’s ArtUp program.
