Los Angeles artist Debbie Korbel didn’t set out to create the characters that one finds in a Strange Circus opening April 20 at Shoebox Projects. 

"They just came out," said Korbel, "kind of like imagining what your children will look like and then having them look completely different than you expected."

Strange Circus is a celebration of being different, a bit off center. The sculptures in this exhibition can be seen as metaphors for all of us who at times have felt that we weren't fitting into standard social constructs. Korbel's sculpted fantasy figures are all a bit eccentric, but not unhappy with who they are. They are different and they own it. They are comfortable in their own skin—even if it’s leopard skin. 

Referring to the range of emotions that course through the human soul on a daily basis, Korbel says, "if I can get you to see or feel emotion from something I have created, then I have succeeded in making that human connection. We are no longer strangers, we are of like mind, if even just for a few moments."

Strange Circus comes to town April 20 to May 5 at Shoebox Projects. There will be an opening reception April 20, 3-6pm and a closing reception and Artist Talk May 4, 2-4pm.
