Remember those childhood dolls and other toys, which collectively were a perpetual source of joy for most of us. Since priorities change with age and responsibilities, now we do not have time even to think about our childhood mates. However, an Australian-based artist Freya Jobbins still seeks inspiration from those plastic people and – through her sheer art – transforms them into some appallingly creative human faces.
Collected from a landfill, Freya utilizes those discarded dolls to bring freaky musculatures into existence. Aside from a green intent and her childhood memories, her other inspirations include Ron Mueck’s “big man,” Gunther Von Hagens’s “Body Worlds”, the Toy Story films and the work of Giuseppe Arcimboldo. Jobbin’s 3D visages lend an artistic virtue to otherwise superfluous, flesh-toned artificial body parts.
