Cactus & Dolls   2 comments

The Cactus Gallery in Eagle Rock CA is having a doll exhibit.

This isn’t your ordinary doll exhibit.

No porcelain skin with bright red lips and generic features. No period ball gowns with petticoats and bloomers.

These are works of art; creative, imaginative, edgy, out-of-the-box works of art.

This style is not for everyone, but I couldn’t get enough.

What’s your reaction?

  1. These are wonderful! My favorite is Frank’s Bride.

    • I’m glad you enjoyed them. I am torn; I love Ulla Anobile’s work with all the stitching, and Christine Benjamin with her felt, the dark side of Christy Kane with “Ulla & Faith” and “Dorian Grey” by Vega, but I think my fav is “Viva La Vida Frida” by Lov Struk. Actually, I want them all! Thanks for looking…

Thank you for your thoughts.
