elastic revolution

Elastic Revolution
Acrylic on Canvas
This is a small poster painting about the UK clothing size system. I believe the system encourages unhealthy obsessive behaviour in women and general unhappiness and anxiety. The poster explores the possibility of a new healthier system in which we abandon set sizes for elastic. I think it would have many positive effects such as, women no longer placing such great emphasis on out skinniying each other, less wastage because if you lose/gain weight you can just adjust the knot and also i think it has health advantages as looser clothes are better for circulation.
