re: oreo barbie: black edition

Unless you’re keeping her as a collector’s item, I think this is an amazingly creative (yet creepy) way to recycle any kind of Barbie you may have…


Artist Statement:

Barbie dolls played a fundamental role in fueling my creative life growing up and are what cultivated my interest in adornment. An invaluable tool for my imagination as a child, ironically, Barbie continues to be such for me as an adult.

Whether revered or despised, there are few who feel neutral about the plastic princess. I am fascinated with who she is as a cultural icon and the vast impact she has had on our society.

I also enjoy the funny juxtaposition of wearing the body, on the body. Barbie has become the accessory instead of being accessorized. I take pleasure in the contrast and contradiction of mass-produced materials transformed and revealed as handmade, wearable works of Art.

  1. This reminds me of that movie Small Soldiers where those military toys came to life and in order to build up their army they used Barbie dolls for reinforcements. That was just as creepy. lol
