In the wake of Mattel’s iconic ‘Barbie’ doll turning 60 last year (hasn’t she aged well?) it seems apt that legendary UK based artist Nick Smith has turned his attention to Mrs. B for his latest edition. Smith’s past works have never shied away from confronting nudity, particularly how sexuality is perceived and warped, and ‘All The Truth of Nature’ is no exception.
Here, Smith combines his full frontal headless image of Mattel’s 1990’s edition Barbie with an extract from John Cleland’s ‘Fanny Hill – Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure’ – the iconic 1748 treatise written from the perspective of an imaginary woman (Ms Hill) and her unabashed, erotic adventures.
