Artful days

I have flown to Germany for a week as my sister is getting married. I went to see a big exhibition called ‘documenta’ yesterday. I am not very arty myself when it comes to brush and paint, but I use art for inspiration for stories or poems.

Lately I have been thinking a lot about femininity and self image and the above statues were my favourite part as they portray fuller figured women. As I am curvy myself I can identify more with images like that. The media floods us with images of ‘ideal’ women, which are skinny and flawless, that’s why it’s refreshing to see the above sculptures in an exhibition. It made me feel better that at least one artist was celebrating the curves as well 🙂
