Allie Pohl is a Los Angeles-based conceptual artist whose work explores the social and cultural constructions of contemporary Western society.
Questioning the social constructs of perfection, Pohl created the Ideal Woman by digitally enhancing Barbie
to fit Western society’s ideal female measurements of 36-24-36. This avatar symbolizes anti-perfection and is repeated throughout Pohl’s work in sculpture, video, ceramic, installation, and neon. In an effort to continue the conversation outside of galleries and museums, Pohl has made her work more accessible through the Ideal Woman jewelry line and sticker packs.
Pohl’s unique aesthetic has been widely exhibited with features in the Orlando Museum of Art, Context Miami, Dallas Art Fair and a public sculpture show curated by Olga Viso with the People’s Choice Award. She is also in collections with Julian Opie, Nick Cave, Marilyn Minter, and Damien Hirst.
