Laurel Hausler, “Baroque Doll”, digital print, 2009
Laurel assembles tableaux with objects acquired from various dollhouse stores, ebay, and her own collections and brings them to life with the lens. Her heroine has braved the elements trekking through rain-soaked forests and treacherous weed fields. When discussing her venture in to photography, Laurel says, “I think I look at my use of this medium as painting with photographs. This allows me to look at the color and blur of the final image as more of a fantastic scene instead of a snapshot.”
The series of photographs will debut at the Affordable Art Fair in New York where the gallery will have a booth May 7th - 10th, 2009. Stay tuned for more doll adventures.
