Toy Series #5: Barbie Don’t Lose Your Head

Oil on canvas, 24″x24″

I got this idea years ago, when visiting my young nieces. It’s not just little boys who like to take things apart. Anyway, it occurred to me that our society has always had a disconnect between beauty and brains, body and soul, looks and happiness. What should be a gruesome and traumatic event, is negated by Barbie’s perfect smile and makeup. Beauty may be pain, but don’t lose your head over it.
