This was so much fun! In this sketch book I played around with ideas concerning this one thing - "dolls".... in particular, "Art Dolls". I am intrigued by the fine line between the doll as a sculptural art form in itself, and the idea of the Art Doll as a "toy" to personify (to dress, add makeup, pose, admire and photograph). The Dolls become more realisitc and more stylised, yet are still a plastic non-biodegradable form. They are engaging, yet absent: Lifeless, yet immortal....
*** Thank you to the Popovy sisters whose amazing dolls provided much of the reference material for these creations.
