Thought of the Day #228 - Fat Art

I can't tell you these are 'fat positive' or even remotely positive at all, but I can tell you that I find them thought provoking. I don't know if the artist was trying to reach out from a fat body or if she's reliving her fat days filled with pain? I really don't know. In any event, I find them darkly thought provoking, something which I feel is pretty rare from today's art.

Actually, I like only one of these (Rosette, first on Your blog), but I like it VERY MUCH. It's beautiful and full of well-balanced art and good taste.

That's the one I bought! I must have good taste. ;-)

You're right about it thought provoking. I found myself looking at it for a few minutes trying to think of the reasons behind it. I do love the first one too but I feel there is a strong sadness behind it.
