Junker Jane- Solo Exhibition of new works
Portland based Monster Art Doll Maker Catherine Zacchino, a.k.a. Junker Jane, presents a new feature exhibition of a dozen mixed media “Creeps.”
“When I began making dolls in 2007, my designs were simple and basic. Most of my dolls were made from single pieces of fabric — one for the front and one for the back. They have since evolved into more detailed works, including pieces that have been stained for an aged effect. From the beginning though, I have always used recycled fabrics as part of my art. I find vintage fabrics and clothing to be huge inspirations for me, and it even inspired my business name, Junker Jane. I love all things aged and weathered! Many things inspire me to come up with my art doll characters, but my main influence comes from my childhood — images from make-believe stories and books that I read. Nothing compares to childhood experiences, and it is from this that I pull most of my ideas. As a child, I was always fascinated by anything otherworldly and supernatural, along with charming stories, such as Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter. These influences have stood with me into my adult years, and I think this contradiction shows itself in my work, as my dolls seem to hold one foot in innocence and another in the shadows. I rarely begin a doll with a concrete idea. I usually have several loose images of what I’d like to achieve, and then I start grabbing fabrics and buttons. I find it easier to create in this fashion as a doll will seem to come together itself.”
