Book of the Week: Week 36, 2014
I went gaga over a silly doll catalog while at a friend's house and she sent it to me. With dolls shot like models for a high fashion magazine and claiming to be representational of women around the world, the catalog was fascinating. Completely staged and shot with shallow depth of field and showing off the best of the best. I kept trying to create something larger, and then decided going for small pieces was the best option. I tore it down in to tiny pages and combined them with the brightest, candy-colored papers I had around. Polka-dots and stripes in shades of pink, blue and red mix it up with fragments of doll images.Circular cutouts combined with patterns create a recurring polka dot theme. Vampy and campy.
