Collage: Paper, Acrylic, Digital, Pencil on Cardboard, Paper.
The work, made meticulously through the collage technique, reworked the female body of an overweight woman. The work starts with a reflection on the problem of female obesity in America. The nude figure of the woman is replicated in series on a nearly psychedelic pattern until it becomes a crafted image-symbol, but at the same time with facets reminiscent of a new Pop Art. The whole creative process has been worked Exclusively by hand, each single figure has been cut and hand-sewn, so the cardboard base, on which the entire collage is based, has been designed and painted without the use of digital technologies. The choice of black and white gives the work a symbolic and at the same time ironical and caricatural atmosphere. The reference to America is evident in the graphics of the subject on which the American flag appears.
