Doll “Secret of the Ocean” (the “Soul” series)
The doll hides from everyone the secrets of her soul, as the oceans hide their secrets from our eyes. She does not hide her face under a mask, but even so she is mysterious. Her gestures symbolize inaccessibility. Her secrets are hidden, because they can cause a storm.
The doll is made in a mixed technique: stitch embroidery, beads and rhinestones, stucco corals, arms, legs and a collar. The sturdy papier-mâché framework is decorated with a self-hardening polymer clay molding (ladoll). The surfaces are painted with acrylics and fixed with varnish.
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.
