SHAPES AND FORMS. Eating Disorders.

Wednesday, 23 February 2011

This Project was based on the theme of shapes and forms, a shape consists of several forms. Having looked at various shapes and forms I personally decided to focus on human shapes and forms to narrow the subject. I decided to look deeper into the human body shapes furthermore I started looking into the matter of eating disorders and looking at human forms at the most extreme. The celebration of new form of women in history of art versus the media celebration of zero size models and how size 0 models are rarely seen in artwork is is the bigger woman that are seen.  I did observational life drawings as well as sketches from secondary sources. I looked at various photographs, books and magazines in order to complete my research for this project. Artist used for inspiration were; Tony Cragg and Jenny Saville.
