”This is me. 38 years old. A mother and a wife. I’m just anybody you meet on the street or in the supermarket. I’m on the seat next to you on the subway or just passing by on my way to work. To you and to most people I’m just anybody but to my self I am that body. I’m the body, that I’ve hated, despiced and tortured with words, rituals, thoughts and food (or lack of) for so long.
I’m the body that hasn’t enjoyed love, lust or life. I’m the body that is too much of some things and too little of others. Or so I’ve been told my whole life anyway. And I’m the body that eventually got fed up with it. To Hell with it all! Only I can tell myself what I can and want to do with my body. So I’m trying to do just that, listen to what I feel like doing whether it’s just taking a warm bath or jumping into a lake during a run.
Being painted by Jovanna is one thing I felt I really wanted and it has been an incredible experience. Scary for sure but also empowering.The way she handles her bodies - respectfully, delightfully and with an amazing eye for beauty - is a stunning example of how all bodies deserve to be handled.
I’m honoured to be a body among bodies in Jovanna’s portfolio and I’m humbled that I get the chance to write this. And finally, ig you have read all this and is still with me I would like to just say thank you! ❤️” Konstnär: @drawnbyjovanna
