Description:
Part of the "DROWN the DOLLS" series, these reflected distortions on the under-surface of the pool mirror the distorted cultural messages that bombard girls and women, here epitomized by the Barbie doll. Pre-pubescent girls pictured "drowning" the dolls present an alternative image of empowerment.

Painting
