'Love Scenes' is a series of thirteen images telling the story of a young woman who invents herself as a Barbie Doll character and begins to wear a mask with the doll's face. After marrying a nice guy, identifiable with Ken Doll, she, probably out of boredom, falls for the physically powerful He-Man. She divorces Ken to marry He-Man whose brutal force destroys her psychologically and physically. This image is the seventh in the series and shows Barbie turning her back on her life with Ken and naively leaning towards the TV projection of He-Man.
