Barbie versus Real Women
The legendary Barbie doll serves as an unreachable and challenging standard of female beauty that many women struggle to achieve. My senior art project focuses upon the relationship between Barbie’s unrealistic physical measurements and those of an average woman. Through the representative portrayal of two contrasting models in drawings: a genuine female and an exaggerated depiction of Barbie if she assumed true human form, I hope to reveal the dangerously misleading nature of America’s iconic doll of beauty.
