My piece is titled "Barbarella Barbie" and is hanging from a tree in the park across the street from our house.
(this is one of the projects I've done with my Ebay win of 10 Barbies!)
I was inspired by watching too many documentaries on Andy Warhol & Mr. Brainwash and also greatly inspired by the insane movie Barbarella my blogger friend Elizabeth had mentioned!
I already had the Barbies when watching Barbarella and thought, gee, Jane Fonda looks like a space age Barbie! So, I spray painted this Asian light fixture (the spaceship) silver and made my Barbies Fluorescent pink. I was trying to make it look like they were making a crash landing on Earth because their ship had engine troubles... yes.. I'm cracking up laughing while typing this...
I even made her space boots! The silver & foil idea came from Andy Warhol - in his "Factory" he made all the walls and ceilings out of aluminum foil and was really into silver & astronauts at the time...
I love the Barbie below peeking her head out!
I made the one below fly over the space ship, she even has a foil cape ;)
Another view of the whole "spaceship"...
I just wanted to have fun with an art project and not over think it... I hope to just make people smile or wonder WTF?! when looking at Barbarella Barbie!
What do you think!?
