If Barbie was a lesbian, who's to say she'd be femme?
6x6x1.5" (painted 2022)
The acrylic painting is done on cradled birch panel with raw wood edges and varnished with a semi-gloss UV protectant coating to resist fading over time.
"Barbie Goes Butch" is part of a series of pop-culture inspired acrylics in bright colours that brought as much joy to paint as they hopefully will bring to collectors who choose to hang them. I love creating that feeling of surprise, a laugh, or smile, in the viewer, by presenting a familiar subject in an unfamiliar or unexpected way.
