“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
― Pablo Picasso
BODY POSITIVE SCULPURES
I stared this journey to self love for my two little girls. I didn't want them to grow up hating their bodies like I did. But how do I teach my children to love themselves? and no let societies cruelty about self image and weight break their spirits? if I can't even look at myself in the mirror without a swarm of negative feelings and thoughts.
Art is my happy place, my escape, a place I can express myself and work though my thoughts and feelings. So I decided to sculpt a figure that closely mimics my own. Instead of circling out all the imperfections that I see on my body, I will celebrate them by painting beautiful things on them, to highlight their beauty.
I hope that whomever purchases or even sees these sculptures, may they bring you to celebrate the beauty and uniqueness, to help you love the flaws you see so that you don't see them as flaws no more. As our bodies are templets, warriors to the world around us. Each scar, each stretch make holds a story of a strong amazing person.
Every body is NORMAL & every body MATTERS.
