“The exhibition of paintings will depict Barbie dolls as news presenters in still life compositions along side other toys and organic objects to represent global warming. Inspired by the mainstream media’s coverage of this issue, the paintings will show Barbie in a “Cool the Globe” series, a term embraced by some media - which gives viewers tips n’ tricks on how to conquer global warming. In addition to parodying the media’s manner, the works are a sincere exploration into environmental issues. It will be bursting with pinks, yellows and other vivid Barbie colours.
One of the works will consist of two human sized Barbie dolls balancing a dripping scoop of ice cream. The scale will be super sized to show the nonsensical body shape of the Barbie doll. The ice cream will hopefully appear as a melting globe and refer to the motto “we have the whole world in our hands”.
