This "Plastic bodies" series focuses on how commercialism distorts people's perception of the way they look. The artist Sheila Pree Bright says "As a result (of our image focused society), the female body becomes a replica of a doll, and the essence of natural beauty in popular American culture is replaced by fantasy. This body of work addresses the loss of personal identity many women experience, specifically women of color."
There are so many young girls influenced by the media and society, and in this day and age, the media and society portray everyone who isn’t under 100 pounds to be fat.
