Chloe Cavey (L4)BA (Hons) Fine Art
After a day I didn’t feel myself, and cried at the thought of the way I look my mom told me something. “ Your inner critic is bullshit” since then that phrase has been stuck inside my head. I used this project looking in to palimpsest to explore body image and body dysmorphia, I’ve been looking at layers of emotions and thoughts that genuinely go through your mind.
I use art as an outlet, a safe space, a playground where I can discuss my opinions and issues on society. This particular piece is self-reflective. It has taken a long time to get to a stable place where I feel comfortable to expose and reveal not only my body but my emotions and mental state too.
This is my ending product, taking a day at a time and not to be so hard on yourself.
