Appreciate: Claire Oswalt

When I was younger, I used to make and play with paper dolls, but none of the dolls I made could compare to the ones artist Claire Oswalt creates. Calling Oswalt’s work, “paper dolls” doesn’t do her justice. She expertly uses paper, wood, and other material to create marionette-like dolls that have moveable joints. What I find to be fascinating about her work is that although the figures’ positions can be changed, the way that this figures are displayed makes it seem like they are frozen in a particular moment. They are capable of movement, yet have been positioned the way they are. Why? Is her use of wood a way to open a conversation about this? Just a thought…a suggestion. More of this talented artist work can be found here. I highly recommend taking a look.
