Artificial Fairies is an on-going series of portraits I create for dolls in my collection. I aim for turning these externally lifeless models into internally living objects. The contrast between a doll, which is the ideal form of human beings yet immobile and silent at the same time, and plants, which have flaws but still full of vitality, creates this poetic space that makes my audiences re-consider where the borderline of life and lifelessness is.
