RESTORE's one-off "Debris Japan" & "Kingdom Mind" figures for Clutter's "Total Atomic Meltdown" exhibition!

I've been a fan of RESTORE's work for several years, but — in that time — I don't believe Abe's creations have ever been featured in a gallery setting… a shame that is about to be rectified! The four above pictured pieces — three 6.7-inch tall "Debris Japan" and one 9.5-inch tall "Kingdom Mind" — are all one-off evolutions of their base figures that will be part of the previously announced "Total Atomic Meltdown" at The Clutter Gallery. Cast mainly in sofubi (Japanese vinyl) — the "Kingdom Mind" has some resin cast parts — these hand-painted pieces something a little extra… and I'm not talking about those omamori laden blindfolds on the "Debris Japan" figures. No, each and every piece has at least one phallic-shaped addition to the base design! A shocking but beautifully executed addition to the figures, these are sure to be high demand pieces… especially if they end up being debut designs for the next evolution of RESTORE overall. Those interested in trying to obtain these 'white whales' should join the Clutter Gallery Preview List for first dibs on exhibition works!

"Total Atomic Meltdown," a group art toy exhibition of neo-kaiju and other strange creations, will open on Saturday, March 8th with a reception from 6-9PM local time and be on display April 4th, 2014 at The Clutter Gallery, 163 Main St., Beacon, NY 12508.
