Under the moniker Salvage Art Sweetheart, L.A. based artist Marsha Perloff creates assemblage art dolls from soulful found objects, salvaged materials, and vintage textiles and notions.
JJ is an assemblage art doll inspired in part by Dr. Seuss, Saturday morning cartoons, and Grimm's Fairy Tales. These realms, in which animals spoke, dressed, and were regarded as peers by their human counter-parts, made a lasting impression on her. She created this one-of-a-kind doll by hand using a variety of recycled, salvaged, vintage, and cast-off items, including a vintage tin with great 1940's era graphics, vintage costume jewelry, buttons, and typewriter keys. Imperfections are to be expected and embraced, as they contribute to this piece's unique character.
