Fire Bird (Жар Птица) 2010

Ball jointed, porcelain, limited edition nude doll. A brand new face painting design is inspired by the late Pre-Raphaelite painting style while the character is taken from the Russian mythology and folklore.

A Fire Bird is a magical folk character, portrayed primarily as a majestic bird with glowing plumage that frequently re-occurs in many Russian fairy tales as an exquisite object of desire for both noble and dishonorable men as many seek to capture it. The magical creature is a dual, trickster character in nature and tends to be a metaphor for temptation and greed as the sources of social corruption, as well as courage and strength of those fight it.

Albino Snowflake 2010

This project was inspired by a documentary I had watched about African Albinos and the danger they face growing up in very superstitious cultures. The bones and tissues of Albinos are considered to have magical properties by the witch and “alternative” medicine doctors when made into potions. Tragically, many children get attacked and murdered for the harvesting of their body parts.

What struck me about the African Albinos is their unique appearance. The strange disparity in their features and their skin put me off balance when it comes to facial recognition. Their hybrid appearance left a very powerful and an un-forgetful impression on me.

The snowflake tiara is sterling silver.
