EMPOWERED TALK TO ME
[POST CARDS TO BOOBS series]
Acrylic on canvas board
8 x 10 inches
Empowered Talk To Me is a painted lips study in a postcard-sized painting series, Post Cards To Boobs. The pink shade ‘Empowered’ is one of five shades of lipstick created by preventative breast and ovarian health hub, Pink Hope, for Bright Pink Lipstick Day 2018. The colours are named after and worn by five affected women in the community.
The talkative lips belong to the Empowered woman, Pascale, and support the mission of Pink Hope to “Know Your Risk. Change Your Future.” On the back of the postcard painting there is a written message from the subject:
“Dear Boobs, You are empowered! I am starting an important conversation with you. Know your risk. Change Your Future. With love, Pascale. XX”
The painting also doubles as a breast check reminder for women on the first day of every month (December 2018).
Together with Empowered Eye On You, this painting was exhibited in the Linden Postcard Show 2018-2019, 23 November 2018 – 10 February 2018, presenting small artworks in 8 x 10 inches.
