OIL PAINTING

Platform Exhibitions || Cozy Artist || Jemima Longworth.jpeg

Unapologetically present, Jemima's oil paintings explore the needlessly insistent sexualisation of the assumed woman’s form. She is inspired by women and non binary folk’s experiences with how they have been treated based on their bodies. Jemima’s aim is to spark conversations about body acceptance and provide fat people a chance to see their bodies represented in a fine art capacity. Painting these figures is extremely relevant as fatphobia is ever present in society. There is constant discrimination to deal with when you are fat hence Jemima is regaining control over the perception of the naked body. She creates an accepting space for women and non binary folk to feel not only comfortable but also celebrated.

"Small and Unobtrusive" (2021)

Oil on canvas with sewn aspects

Platform Exhibitions __ Cozy Artist __ J.Longworth. Small and Unobtrusive. 2020. 95cm x125

How ridiculous is it that a body is supposed to be ‘small and unobtrusive’ to fit into society?

Fat people don’t owe it to anyone to be ‘small and unobtrusive’.

In painting large naked bodies Jemima creates a safe, comfortable space for fat people that might discomfort some - and that's okay. Conversations around body acceptance, space and who gets to occupy it are essential.

Take a moment to celebrate your body whatever it’s size. And if you need to, take a moment to consider how you can and will fight fatphobia.
