BARBIE'S TWISTED LITTLE WORLD...

Meet Mariel Clayton. A ontarian artist that uses photography and Barbie dolls to scream her disgust of the "perfect (boring) life" these dolls try to show the World though our little girls.


To the question "Why Barbie?" She naturally replies:

Because I hate Barbie. I intensely dislike the stereotype that the “ideal” female fits no current authentic female form. You can’t get to be Barbie without an ocean’s worth of peroxide, 27 plastic surgeries and a complete lack of intelligence, so it irritates me immensely that this is the toy of choice women give to their daughters to emulate.
At least with boys’ toys like GI Joe and Action Man, these were characters that had personality, depth and purpose, worthy of real imaginative storytelling. Barbie has nothing except clothes and “being a girl,” but what is being a girl? Being a vapid shell with tits up to your ears? Playing in your kitchen or changing outfits for the umpteenth time so “Ken” will think you’re pretty?

Most of her images are pretty violent (and funny somehow) but i chose the ones that depics our B.Girl as a slutty sexy doll.
