BLOW UP DOLLS AS ARTIFICE

"LADIES"

Images predicated on  the visual/cognitive dissonance between the reality of human-ness and the manipulations of it. An emphasis on dolls as emblems of celeb-centric culture obsessing over body image (tits, lips, butts), insta-sex and all It-things. 2003, ongoing.

THE INNOCENT PROJECT

Dolls are not subject to disambiguation. They are ciphers, metaphors, symbols, to be interpreted by owner or viewer with affection, fear, obsession -- and humor. These dolls exist within psycho-sexual, pyscho-social, and economic contexts of the 19th and 21st centuries. A few send a wink to Hans Bellmer.

WOMEN OF THE WORLD

Commentary on women who are trapped/enslaved/confined by money and value, men, religions and cultures globally.

MELTDOWN

A personal journey, 2008, translated into dolldom. As the billionaires, daddies, and trustafarians have lost their plunder, The "Ladies" cannot cope with reality. These images explore their terminal desperation.

BLUE DREAMS

Preliminary series using personal photographs and life-like dolls from found pornographic and erotic images.
