‘dollfaces’ by freya jobbins

australian artist freya jobbins has re-purposed old children’s dolls in an unusual way – by assembling them into three dimensional portraits known as ‘dollfaces’. the artworks – reminiscent of giuseppe arcimboldo’s fruit and vegetable paintings – use the toys in a way to create caricature-like facial features of a somewhat grotesque nature. the pieces are an exploration of the correlation between consumerism and recycling, certainly bringing your attention to the point with the absurdist humanoid forms.

jobbins says of the collection:

‘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.’
