Plastic Body Series
Margaux Lange's Plastic Body Series art jewelry collection utilizes salvaged Barbie doll parts in combination with hand-fabricated sterling silver and pigmented resins. The series is meant to examine and celebrate her own, as well as pop culture’s relationship with the icon known simply as: Barbie.
Lange received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art (2001), where her Plastic Body Series was first conceived. A Fine Arts education gave Lange the foundation necessary for conceptual exploration in her jewelry work, however, a childhood obsession with the doll and her miniature world is what she credits for nurturing her creativity and dexterity from an early age.
Margaux has been creating work in this series and exhibiting extensively for ten years. Her jewelry has been published in numerous books and has garnered international press coverage in the world's top Art, fashion and design magazines. She is represented by Art Jewelry galleries and boutiques across the United States and abroad. The Plastic Body Series is sought after by Art Jewelry collectors, Barbie nostalgics, and bold individuals alike. To view more of Lange's jewelry visit: www.margauxlange.com
