wendy mayer

i was introduced to the work of wendy mayer by my art teacher. shes such an inspirational artist, i love this piece which is a ragdoll. i think the way she uses wax to make her work so realistic
my project is very much about how young girls are perceived and how they are almost forced into following such a materialistic lifestyle. i like the way that this ragdoll isnt... its not wearing excessive makeup and it hasnt got a pauls boutique bag... its a real representation of a ragdoll. (A rag doll is a children's toy. It is a cloth figure, a doll traditionally home-made from (and stuffed with) spare scraps of material. )i think this is what young girls are meant to look like
