I do not think it is possible for us, as humans, to not judge. It is an evolutionary trait that helped us to survive, but now our judgements of others dictate how we view situations and other people. Attractiveness plays a huge role in our initial impression of someone. As a dancer, I am used to being judged and judging. I think that I am hugely critical of myself, which makes me critical of others and especially their bodies. Being thin is an obsession in our society and is considered attractive, beautiful even. When you are thin, you are bony and this is attractive to some and repulsive to others. I wanted to draw some images that celebrate this skeletal quality some celebrated and sometimes shunned. It does not matter my opinion on them but I think that it is important to decide whether they are appealing or not. Black, white and gray are also simple and beautiful in my eyes and are celebrated as well in this series of paintings.
I am an art student at Maggie Walker and this is the place where I talk about what we're making and what we're learning... Through this I can pour out my heart about my artistic experience.
