The penetrating and focused stare of these two faces is what began my journey in creating this work. I encountered the dolls heads presented as a pair available for purchase, and couldn't do anything but buy them.
They're riddled with associations and puzzles. If I think of them as persons, then why are they together and what does each see? If I view their objective qualities, I muse on the obvious antiquity, the holes in the tops of the heads and the missing pair of eyes. Is my compassion fueled by the questions that I conjure as if they were humans or is it conjured by speculations about their real existence as discarded, but perhaps once-loved toys. A Universe of comparisons, contrasts and dichotomies arises.
That inner monologue and more is what I want the viewer to feel with this work.
