Leading Ladies

A child playing with a doll attributes a personality to it. When children play with dolls they do not limit themselves to what is intended by the manufacturer or the society that produced the object; a child’s play is often subversive and perverse. I approach dolls in the same way. In our society these figures are loaded with meaning. My work recognizes those meanings, but the figures are also personalities who exist as bodies and souls involved in mysteries which I explore.
