Who are the master puppets, and what is the author's doll?
The doll was once the dream of every little lady, and now, unfortunately, the incredible is happening on the shelves with toys. Here both smeshariki and a dozen of Barbies resemble each other, as if all of them are twins .... It seems that the dolls lost their uniqueness and depreciated in the eyes of the younger generation. But there are still people whose aspirations are directed only at the revival of the doll originality.
Some creative people devote their whole life to dolls, counting them as their children. After all, a doll is a living being, if a piece of the artist's soul is embedded in it, which engendered the unique aura of the doll. Creating a doll allows you to fully reflect the inner world of its creator.
The author's doll originated in the XX century. The presence of the author, that is, the creator and performer, already says that each of his dolls is a unique creation.
Pupae painters are universal masters. They must be sculptors and painters, fashion designers and tailors, shoemakers and hairdressers, carpenters and jewelers. After all, it is necessary to be able to create a wonderful fairy-tale world. What you need to create wonderful dolls: uncomplicated materials, threads and needles and still need to stay a little child. And then incredibly characteristic, colorful in the image of the doll will be born. Dolls never cry - the toy should be fun. If only because children take them in hand and give them names.
What is the author's doll? Perhaps this is the second "I" of the artist. This is his special vision, not a commercial demand. Playing with such a doll as children play will not occur to anyone, because they are, rather, an object for contemplation and aesthetic experience. The author's doll is executed in a single copy, it is unique and this is its interest. Because of this, she does not need mass love, she requires a one-to-one relationship.
On the face of expensive plastic, immaculately smooth, almost luminous, like polished ivory, is not a smile, but a mysterious, longing from the doll. And just this doll is so attractive. It attracts attention to itself - do not take your eyes off. It seems that every such girl has a mystery in her gaze, which is directed not at the world around her, but as if inside her. And it becomes clear that, even though children like this doll, it will ultimately join the home collection of mature people. If it is another toy for a child, albeit unusually lively, bright and agile, then an adult can appreciate the subtlety of manual work and the creativity of the plan from the height of his life experience.
