Is there a better way to celebrate St.Patrick’s Day early than with a depiction of the female body as a hunk of meat!?
“The paintings below are a metaphor for the sexuality of the body. They express the way the female body is portrayed through advertising, art and media in our society. The cropping of the female face within paintings and advertising is especially degrading. This negative portrayal of sexuality is harmful to the way a person is viewed. The simple meat paintings with little background detail reference magazine covers which concentrate on the foreground.“– from Karengrosman.blogspot.com
If you’re in Toronto on St.Paddy’s, partake in something unique and crafty and head over to the Gladstone Artists and Fleas artist, designer & vintage market. March 17th (11am-4pm), it’s free, and Karen Grosman will have her wares on display.
