Duality on Canvas: Exploring the Contrasts of Babs and Barbs, based on the original 1959 Barbie doll and finding yourself in both of them.  

"Babs" (pink) is a vibrant and dynamic painting that pays homage to the iconic 1959 Barbie doll, capturing her unmistakable sass and charm. At the center of the composition stands Babs, the perfect, pink version of Barbie, exuding confidence and personality with her signature side-eye glance. From her meticulously styled hair to her fashionable ensemble, every detail of Babs reflects her passion for fashion and her unwavering love for all things pink.

Inspired by the resurgence of Barbie's influence in modern pop culture, particularly fueled by the 2023 Barbie Movie wave, this painting came to reflect a childhood filled with pink, like enough to almost turn you off. Babs embodies the essence of girlie pop, radiating with pink hues, neon accents, and bold, bright accents that reflect her vivacious personality and outgoing nature.

"Barbs" (purple) stands as the enigmatic counterpart to her twin sister, Babs, in a duo of paintings that explore the duality of beauty and rebellion. While Babs is the epitome of perfection, Barbs embraces her imperfections with pride, exuding an aura of dark allure and equally unapologetic side-eye attitude glaring right back at her “perfect” twin.

Barbs is more than just another Barbie; it's a celebration of individuality and self-expression. Through her dark allure and unapologetic sass, Barbs reminds us that true beauty lies in embracing our uniqueness and staying true to ourselves, no matter who we are or what we look like.
