Matroyshka

This collection uses the Russian doll as it inspiration to create a body of work that explores storytelling and decorative imagery using contemporary issues. Each doll is designed and then digitally printed and decorated with mixed media objects totally relevant to the theme. So the largest doll describes our obsession with food and over consumption using giant sweets as the main background and then a variety of sugary and food based items/decoration are added in the same meticulous way the traditional dolls are painted to tell stories. The other dolls follow suit but use different themes such as gambling, global warming and so on.
