Lawrence Street Gallery's latest exhibition, The Body Eclectic '16.
The graphic image of a female form depicting different
viewpoints represents a factory line churning out the same look for
everyone. I slipped this image into a vellum bag to complete the idea of
packaging a new body. I also used a list of body altering procedures to accentuate the female figure in the center. An old tape measure symbolizes the constant struggle with
weight issues and the quest to look better. Why
can't we just be happy to be alive and healthy? For myself, the focus
is on making healthier eating choices and maintaining an exercise plan so I have
more energy to do the things I love. It would get pretty boring if we all were the same. Embrace your uniqueness:) Let go of perfection. Whatever that is.
***UPDATE*** Both pieces were accepted and the
show open is this Friday, 2/5 from 6-9PM. The juror was Tylonn J. Sawyer.
