BBW is about the complexities of self-love, self-hate, and the fixation on the fat female body. "BBW" is largely used in the porn industry to reference the fetishization of fat womens' bodies and the hostile culture that surrounds it. This exhibition is meant to confront this toxic attitude and features large-scale oil paintings depicting Big Beautiful Women who chose to share their bodies with the Internet. Fat girls live their lives being told they're unattractive, inadequate, and undeserving of love; BBW is about challenging this notion using size, a sexual gaze, and composition to render simple "camera-phone selfies" into sexy, provocative pieces of art.
