Doll “Pirate” (the “Soul” series)
The rebellious spirit and recalcitrance are hidden under a mask, but the soul is as deep as the ocean. The doll has no face. And when you don’t find the usual, you look deep inside, and suddenly you realize that you are looking into the Abyss, and the Abyss is curious looking at you.
The doll is made in a mixed technique: a solid papier-mâché base is decorated with self-hardening polymer clay (ladoll), painted with acrylics, varnished. Baroque scarlet dress is made of cotton. When creating the doll the author used satin stitch embroidery, Swarovski embroidery with beads and rhinestones, molding of coral, arms, legs and collar.
The doll is mounted on a wooden stand decorated with papier-mâché.
The “Soul” Series (2019)
The search for a new interpretation of the puppetry, expressed in the depths of our souls. Dolls in this series have no faces, but this does not mean that they are faceless and empty. Emptiness is a synonym for mystery, depth, and unknown. Our true face is hidden from sight. And emptiness also happens within us. We long for someone to fill it.
There are four dolls in the series today. Each doll is in a single copy.
