HAPPINESS IS REAL ONLY WHEN SHARED (Tolstoy)
GB is born from the need to create emotions and to interpret reality embracing the mindfulness state of mind of the “be here and now!”. GB focuses on the development of young adults with an interchangeable expression, that’s why they do not have the mouth, while the children and the animals in their faces have only the expression of happiness. The experiences of emotion have contaminated only the adults, not the animals neither the kids. Kids and animals have only the emotion of happiness to share with people.
So it is the viewer’s emotion the true protagonist – not the work itself.
Just as every human being is unique and inimitable, GB’s works are handmade, and they are therefore unique as well. Simplicity is the second protagonist of GB’s work. And that is why the style used deliberately recreates that of children’s, and the subjects portrayed are characters of the everyday life.
