Skinny

“Skinny” 皮包骨 – 71x9cm – Oil on Canvas, 2010

A perfect “Hour Glass” figure – and yet it is obviously distorted and perverse. How thin is ‘too thin’? How much pressure, both internal and external, is put on women to lose weight in order to be considered beautiful? This painting highlights the self-consciousness of ‘bathing suit anxiety’.

一個完美的「沙漏」人物,可是身材卻明顯地歪曲且不合常理。瘦到什麼程度才叫做「太瘦」呢?為了看起來美麗,不知道有多少的內在和外在壓力讓女性開始減肥。這幅畫強調的是「泳衣焦慮」的自我意識。
