I saw this photo awhile ago when you posted it on the TIB forum, and I've always loved it. Probably one of my favourite photos of SSE.

i really like this... it has a narrative... and it is a narrative that could dovetail nicely into the work you've done with sexual/pornographic imagery...

speaking of which, i found stacks of old playboys at a thrift/antique store in hayward... and thought of you... (laugh)... of your art, to be specific... that may need to be added...

i love to think of someone in a thrift store browsing retro porn and thinking of me! :lmao: i know what you mean!

thank you. there's something deeply disturbing about these dolls to me, because they do exude a bizarre sexuality, but also extreme innocence, because of the big eye business. it's extraordinarily transgressive and also reveals a lot about our own concepts of nudity, body language, etc.

browsing?!... i bought some!... i was fascinated by the difference between the images in 1967 versus 1974 versus 1980... i don't what i'll do with all that... but i'm tempted to do something...

(nodding)... they do have a sexuality/sensuality... and an innocence... (which i would attribut eto the eyes, as well)...

two things/thoughts... (1), have you considered adding makeup to the dolls for shots like this... it might add something... and (2), have you seen cindy sherman's images of dolls (g.i. joe and barbie)?...

in case you're curious about the latter, check out this interview [link] and/or these images [link] ...

you should definitely play with them and see what you come up with. those mags are endlessly fascinating. my faves come from around 1973. it's a hot and hard time and still real enough to be naturally erotic, without fetish.
i have seen cindy sherman's pieces, and i think they are interesting. i don't add the makeup because it stains the dolls. i like to keep them clean because i have so many ideas for them. however, i do have one barbie who will be significantly distressed permanently for one of my ideas :lightbulb:

i'm not sure that playboy is the right magazine for me explore sex and body issues... it is too air-brushed/anesthetized... but i am curious... i'll have to go back to that antique/thrift store and dig through the boxes...

hhhhhmmmm... distressing barbies?... (grin)... sounds like the new fall line-up on fox television...

(laugh)... well... to be honest, that would work... and, although i shouldn't necessarily admit it, those magazines were my 'education' is erotica/porn...

Not familiar with these dolls...these look more Keane-esque than Blythe or any of the other "big- eyed kids."

yes, these are turbo-keanesque, i think. "susie sad eyes" is their name, but they have tons of knock off versions as well.
