'Dick Dolls'

Here are a couple of the 'Dick Doll' soft sculptures (if you will) which I am creating for an up comming group exhibition for the Adelaide Feast Festival.
My dolls are a humorous comment on the way that gay men are often portrayed as the 'girls best friend' in mainstream media, and are de-sexualized and emasculated to a degree.
Being portrayed in this way I always feel like we are made out to be 'just one of the girls'.
Thus I have created these dolls, designed to be be a girls favorite plush toy, keeping them company, sipping coffee or martinis (from their cute material cups).
However they have been created with unusually large penises as a way of saying,
