DOLL WORKSHOP COMPOSURE

This illustration was shown at one of the most prestigious art galleries in Buenos Aires. In the 1960’s Buenos Aires owning a doll was a symbol of wealth and belonging to the high-class society. The illustration depicts what happens when this is only appearance and the conservation of the doll is all that blinds them to lost economic abundance. The artist used scraps of clothes gnawed by time and a grunge aesthetic to show the decadence of those people. The doll becomes not just a simple object, but a reflection on its owners.
