The Factory Gallery Presents Katlyn Hubner with her first solo show in Seattle featuring her series "Plastic."

People of all ages and backgrounds are drawn to the Plastic paintings. Couples, singles, adolescents, children – you name it; they welcome the idea of this series and enjoy them in different ways and see past the nudity. The similarities the dolls and humans share, as far as the “female” dolls go, is that both have breasts, hips, buttocks, an hourglass shape. The differences between flesh and plastic, is that they are missing nipples, and some models of the dolls have built-in panties or leotards. The dolls in my compositions are in far more intimate situations than I would ever dare place live models, and they are embraced by the viewers with no judgement.

We usually would interact with these dolls as innocent children. During this young chapter of our lives we have not been tainted by the world with what is right or wrong, and what should or should not be seen. In today’s life, violence is far more prevalent in homes than sensuality. The dolls have made it possible for us to dive into the compositions and forget our pretenses. Life size, large paintings, these plastic figures enter a timeless contemporary dimension since we all have known them since our childhood and in the right hands can transcend our personal confinements.
