Just a little something I made last week
A pregnant, tattooed doll.
It’s a work in progress: I’m still thinking about the head dress. I was so mentally fatigued from working on orders that I just had to make something else.Â A Tattoo Extreme magazine in Taipei is running a cover story on Enchanted Doll this month and I was hoping to finish this new doll in time for the August 10th deadline. But I don’t think I’m going to make it even if I send it to the publisher right now, because the issue is probably going to print as I write.
This piece, titled “State Property” is a part of the triptych composition of three dolls under a working tittle “The holy trinity of traditional womanhood”. And I don’t mean that in a good way. Well, this project is kind of loaded with gender politics symbolism, but I don’t want to talk about it just yet. This is just a peek. Chad and I will be making a gallery for her very shortly.
There you go, State Property-my first pregnant porcelain doll. I don’t know how I feel about her yet. And no, I’m not pregnant and plan to never be.
