We have a new range of greeting cards in the shop by Melbourne Artist Jessica Robertson.

Roberston builds elaborate sets for her photos of dolls. The cards have an edgy humour exploring themes of revenge, sexual jealousy and narcissism (see photos above). It's amazing how much story telling she manages to squeeze into each tableau.

I love the psychological ambiguity of the card above "The Narcissist" - is Barbie disempowered or is she a willing participant in Ken's masturbatory act of self spectating? Was she co-erced into this subjugated position or is she actively enabling him?

One thing is clear - these cards are not your average greeting card!

Available from Corky Saint Clair $6 Au

My photo
I like rainbows, crystals, coloured pencils, swimming, manifesting, visualising, poetry, going out for breakfast, graphic novels, air conditioning, miniature anything, clothing made from synthetic fabrics, travelling, travelling, staying in nice hotels, headphones, husbears + soft hands. I don't like people who make me feel tired.
