The Art of Sandrine Pelissier
Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/SandrinePelissier
In my work, I want to celebrate the true beauty and diversity of real women bodies of all ages and shapes. I also want to make art for women and not only about women.
Like most women, I have struggled with body image most of my life, being constantly told I was too thin as a child and teenager and not thin enough as an older woman. So I want to represent the female body in a non sexual, objectifying or exploitative way and challenge the mainstream narrative that women are only worth our attention when adhering to certain stereotypes of youth, thinness and perfection.
Real people in all their diversity and imperfection deserve to be the subject of fine art and I would like my art to help people, and in particular women feel confident, proud, valued and accepted as they are.
I work from drawings made in life drawing classes with inspiring and diverse models.
