Kristin Victoria Barron is a Brooklyn-based artist who makes, among other objects, odd-looking dolls out of human hair, leather, and latex. What appear to be the priests sit huddled in legless clumps while human-haired, blue-faced, chicken-footed twin girls lie not far from them. Born and raised in Michigan, where she was sick much of her childhood, Barron reports the Priests & Twins series was inspired by her experience with a Jungian analyst with whom she examined her dreams. Her other works include a man’s hat/mask outfitted with horsehair, a woman’s eye-patch made of over-sized rhinestones, and an interactive, digital, Tokyo vending machine.
