Helga – Exquisite Monster Art Doll

Helga – Exquisite Monster Art Doll

 

Helga is one of a new series of “Exquisite Monsters” inspired by antique wax medical models and specimens representing genetic anomalies, disfigurements and diseases. However, these characters are wholly a product of my own imagination and do not depict specific real-life conditions or persons. They arise out of my fascination with biological abstraction/surrealism as it is expressed in nature and how it is framed by human culture.

 

Handmade Doll Sculpture. 10.75 inches tall. Mixed media.
