Squid Girl #1

10x8x1.75 inches.
Acrylic on wood panel, 2019.

Dr. Strangelove wrote an analysis of the cultural role of the Barbie doll in his Ph.D. dissertation and in his first book with the University of Toronto Press, The Empire of Mind (2005).

Here the good doctor took a doll, replaced its head with a toy octopus, photographed the sculpture and used the image to make this original piece of Pop Art.
