About The Artwork

When you see a child playing they are fully and enthusiastically immersed in what they are doing. There is no concern about what is happening in the world around them, they are mindful of the moment and experiencing pure, full joy. Their world is focused fully on playing with careless abandon in a way that we only partially understand. Our adult selves wistfully watch and yearn for what our children have. This captivating innocence of a child absorbed in their own world reminds us as the audience to try and bring a little more focus to these moments of playful delights. 

Gadi Fraiman’s newest series of young children immersed in play brings the viewer into the world of innocence and joy. Each individual Balloon Girl focuses on an implicit characteristic from the joys of childhood. Intending to bring the viewer into a world in which a child can dream, Gadi has created the hyperbolic young girls experiencing a purity not yet spoiled by adult-ish affairs.

Inspired by his grandchildren running barefoot and fully engaged in the enjoyment of life, Gadi watched them at play and was transported into their world. Watching children play brings a freshness that adults never tire of seeing, but also a nostalgia for the youthful emotions and virtues lost, reminiscing of a time when we were free of any awareness of suffering or defeat.
