Artist Freya Jobbins – Non-Traditional Sculptor

by Sherry Riter in Art  

At first glance I thought that the only reason I loved Freya Jobbins art was because I was a “girl,” but then I realized that she not only used doll pieces, but she also used army men. So although most of her work are with girl dolls, I still think men will find it rather cool.

Freya’s detailed sculptures uses the body pieces of dolls and toys as parts to create humanoid assemblages of faces, heads and larger busts. The plastic doll pieces are cut to different sizes and glued together in layers to create a 3D image which is totally fascinating!

Freya had this to say about her work:

“My work explores the relationship between consumerist fetishism and the emerging recycling culture within the visual arts. Due to our society’s over consumption of plastic children’s toys, the materials I need for my assemblages are all very accessible.”

those are delightful!!! I can see why you like them! 😉

years ago, we had a family friend, a sculptor, who did work on Madison Avenue designing & making award-winning props for TV & magazine ads… his finest were a series for Honeywell ads, animal sculptures made entirely of resistors, condensers, & other bits of electronic items – they were fantastic – & these remind me of them

Yeah. Way freaky. And kewl. Reminds me of that scene from Toy Story, the one in Sid’s bedroom with all the toys coming after Buzz. A bit creepy. 🙂

You have extremely good taste there Sherry. AND the necessary sense of humour, a guy from the US wrote about my work and love what he said:
“………….they have that same car crash rubberneck appeal: tough to look at but difficult to turn away.”
Thanks Sherry
