Dollfaces by Freya Jobbins

Dollfaces by Australian artist Freya Jobbins offers us a unique profile. These sculptures consist of plastic doll parts. A hand here, a forehead there, a random buttocks, it all comes together in bizarre harmony.

From the artist’s words, “my work explores the relationship between consumerist fetishism and the emerging recycling culture within the visual arts due to our society’s overspending on children’s plastic toys, especially dolls, the materials for my assemblages are very accessible.”
If you think about it, the message is clear. Reusing these old dolls for an artful purpose at least gives them a cause for the future. Typically, they just feed our consumerism convincing us that our kids need more stuff, and so we binge on buying plastics. We must be honest with ourselves, are we becoming the monsters featured here?

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
