Today I am offering GOODBYE, my 4 inch KidRobot Mini Munny custom for sale in my shop at emilybee.bigcartel.com! Goodbye was originally made for my two-person exhibit “Fantastic Heroes” at The Trace Gallery in December 2011. He was made with his mate ‘Hello’ (who has already sold, but you can see them both here).
We casually say Hello + Goodbye to each other everyday. But what happens when we say it to someone we love? What if we never see them again? I thought about the anguish of that situation, and wanted to express the concept with two separate pieces. Goodbye has been painted in blues and purples to further enhance the sadness that he represents.
And I’m young but it’s hard to believe
That someday I will never see you again
And you might not believe this
But you’ve changed me so much
~ ‘Hello’ by Tegan + Sara
