Pretty Ugly Things


Most 'subversive' Barbie art makes me uncomfortably embarrassed for its usually wide-eyed creator, but this lovely snarling piece by Norwegian artist Are Sundnes just makes me uncomfortable (which I, of course, take great masochistic pleasure in). BEHOLD!:

Awesome! Have you seen the work of sculptor E. V. Day?? she did some Barbie stuff in her early work.

And margauxlange.etsy.com has some kind of nice Barbie jewelry. Not as gruesome as this, though! :-D

Happy Friday!!!

Barbie of the un-Dead! Creepy, and eerily reminiscent of some of my earlier work involving Barbie and not-so-safety scissors.
