I started by randomly painting my page with three different colours. Then, using Orly's stencil, I stenciled the skeleton using black paint and various elements from the stencil. To create the spine between the ribs and pelvis I simply isolated the spine part of the rib element. I off set the stencil slightly and over stencilled it with white paint. I like the suggestion of dimension that this overlay produced.
Using some rub on lettering I had in my stash, I added the main text, which was the comment I overheard a very anorexic looking young teenage girl saying to her mother..."Why is everyone always trying to get me to eat?"
To emphasize the word 'eat' I tore it out of magazine lettering.
I used a white pen to journal some thoughts about the sad statement the girl was making, and about healthy body image and the portrayal of young women in media.
Using some 'found objects' and more acrylic paint I made some marks to fill in some of the empty space and to sort of echo the general shape and feel of the spine.
