The Golden Apple:
The first time woman were blamed for eating
I got to find PEACE of mind…
LET THE GIRL EAT.
EAT! EAT! EAT
Fries before guys:
Pick the carbs Sis
For Julia this was about developing a healthy relationship with food after struggling with beauty standards and extreme dieting. For lovers that didn’t work out she starved herself, became quiet and softer. This is about redefining her relationships to food and being body positive. The words that inspire these installs are “FEED ME. Im starving.” And “let the girl EAT.” She views food as a symbol of equality. Rather than picking less she made giant food for people to eat. Rather than being perfect she chooses happiness
Julia Taft is a German Fijian-Japanese artist who works with acrylic, oil, pastel and spray paint. She mixes neo-expressionism and realism. She is a diverse artist who fell in love with all of it, from creating street art to large installations. Taft’s art includes poetic symbolism to convey issues on socioeconomics, racism and feminism. These dichotomies and concepts are all based from all of her own experiences. At the very heart of Taft’s art is her ability to be vulnerable.
