Sculptures Pt.2

I decided to paint the mushrooms on this figure gold. Inspired by Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold, whereby embracing the flaws creates a stronger more beautiful piece of art.

I like to think of it as embracing the female form, in whatever form it may take. All bodies are beautiful.

Progression Idea:

  • take it further with castings of real bodies
  • perhaps call for models who have past injuries, illnesses (mastectomies, amputations)
  • to show that no matter what happens, we are still beautiful, it is still our body
