30. Big is Beautiful

detail from Pink Lady, Niki de Saint Phalle, oil paint and mix media collage, Hirshhorn Museum, Washington DC

Within the exhibition Strange Bodies: Figurative Works from the Hirshhorn Collection, I came across this work by one of my favorite artists. This pink lady invites us to explore her magnificent full figure. When viewed up close she is adorned with hearts of all textures and sizes. In this piece big most certainly is beautiful! I lOVE IT!!!
