This week we were asked to find artists who explore the same themes in their works that we are working with. My current focus is obesity. The art that stems from obesity is not always the easiest to look at. The first work, here, by Joseph Barbaccia, is chilling. It is a sculpture that combines a stomach with a cheese grater. He is using these two objects to create a new meaning. John Yeadon made a series of controversial photographs exploring obesity. He has been banned from some galleries from presenting grotesque pictures of extremely large nudes. His work can be found here. The last artist that I found depicts obesity in a different way. Her work, found here, is a series of paintings that shows food vs non-food items. All three works, while all vastly different, all convey the same contextual meaning as my own. I hope to not be as gruesome or overt as the first two artists, however. I would like to depict the situation and have others decide themselves what to do about what they are shown.
