"Hidden from the world for no one to see. Invisible to society physically and sexually. Here the compulsive overeater soul is cloaked by the fabric of a jacket, much like the obese woman that is hidden under layers upon layers of fat, shapeless and undefined yearning to break free and be seen."
"Women often cover up who they are, we are confused as to whether to be what society wants us to be or what we want to be, we have a feminity we want to show through but not to be all we are seen for."
"Sexism; a woman's intelligence discredited by her
gender; mental undressing."
"Earliest models of womanhood - statues of Catholic saints! Affixed on
pedestals contropasto, sorrowful eyes and flowing hair. Voluminous
ceramic robes modestly covered a form that was nonetheless intended to be
female. The idealized long hair and tapered fingers of these figures
represented attributes of femininity, albeit a sterile, suffering
kind. The actual body was unacknowledged, clean. Supposedly, a number of
these saints achieved martyrdom by starving themselves."
