Voo’s 2018 Fertility Doll series is inspired by the wondrous yet mystifying miracles of birth. Voo, a Los Angeles native and mother of three daughters, translates the efforts of fertility into acrylic paintings and painted sculpture, depicted in digital form.
In her piece titled “Whoa, Where’s the Horse?” the head of a fertility doll floats across the screen. The head’s position alternates between upside-down and upright, referring to the doll’s rules of conception. Prior to conception, she must remain upright. Afterward, the doll must be turned on its head.
Voo’s digital artwork offers viewers access to the doll’s capabilities through the screen.
