Nicole Houff is a Minneapolis photographer who has a mild obsession with Barbie. Influenced by imagery from the 50s and 60s, she creates scenes with the dolls in studio that have a sense of whimsy mixed with a little sarcasm. To her, Barbie is a positive, strong and empowering figure and Nicole tries to utilize her to create conversation. The show will include 18 – 22 x 30 inch framed works and 4 to 6 – 36 x 50 inch prints.
More information is available on Nicole Houff’s website.
