Fat Lady Portraits

These portraits are taken from Circus Posters for sideshow "Fat Ladies". Often dressed as dolls or babies, these women seem to represent an opulent innocence, with only the tiniest references to sexuality. In these pieces I am comparing the ladies with the ultra-feminine fabric that they are painted on. The sepia tint of the old photo colours references the pallette of the fabric, while the giant blooms echo the frills and flesh of the ladies.
