I found an old box with scribbling inside. I immediately thought of a little kid and the treasures that must have been kept inside. So, I decided to channel one of my favorite artists, Cecile Perra, and make a kid-like family portrait.
The metal tags are vintage French plant markers on which I painted little characters. I made the soft doll out of simple cotton fabric and paint, adding pencil lines for the face.
Although this is not entirely like other work that I’ve done, my fascination with dolls had to come out in this piece.
