I can’t remember when was the last time that I played with the set of Barbie dolls I accumulated as a child. However, I do remember the elaborate scenarios that I used to amuse myself with when I did play with them. Sunbathing and creating sand castles in the park’s sandbox. Tending to their imaginary fevers as the most qualified three-year old doctor. Saving the world from all the evil monsters. That was some of the purest kind of imagination.
Sarah Cowling is a collage artist and acrylic painter. She has been creating for about 20 years.
She has started creating what she calls ‘3dcollage’ which employs the use of toy characters to create sets to photograph and then writing a story line to go with them.
Sarah’s inspiration for these 3dcollage’s has been “a friend who was posting strange vignettes in her studio with Barbie dolls and other stuff.”
