【心靈雞湯】每天來點正能量 藝術家以畫筆鼓勵女性自愛

當社會充斥著對女性的暴力,歧視甚至性騷擾時,藝術家 Alison Rachel的作品便顯得更有意義。她於2016年創立Instagram帳戶「Recipes for self love」,每天發表一幅插畫,畫中包括一個女人及一句治癒人心的句子,直接回應社會上的性別歧視,種族歧視及性取向歧視等。

治癒別人同時治癒自己

Alison開始繪畫這類型插畫的原因是因為自己對精神健康的關注,當她的情緒陷入低潮時,她希望尋找一些可以安慰自己心靈的資訊,尤其是當女性面對情緒低落時或遭受批評時,該如何重拾自信或走出低潮。但她遍尋網絡及不同媒體後,發現沒有這類型的平台,於是便決定自己製造一個。

至於創作內容的靈感來源,部份來自女性主義者,還有部份來自她或身邊人的日常生活。她表示很多女性或弱勢都備受歧視,所以很容易就取得創作靈感。至於她筆下的女人,有時是配合句子而設計,有時則是覺得要替某一群組的女性發聲,所以把她們畫出來。她的插畫發表至今,受過不同人的批評,甚至因作品有性的成份而被Instagram刪除,但她只表示「這就是社會的縮影,即便如此,你還是應該做自己應該做的事!」。她筆下的女性在主流價值觀下並不「美」,但美不應該是單一標準,但只要有自信和愛自己,就可以看出自己獨特之「美」。

讓我們一起欣賞一下她的作品吧!

We kick off this weeks’s sex positive campaign with this important topic in partnership with @wevibe. Casual sex isn't wrong but it's not for everyone. Often internalized sex shame stops women from living their best sex lives, past sex related trauma can be an issue affecting one's sexual behaviour, casual sex may just hold no enticement, or simply being asexual or on the spectrum will affect one's drive. You don't need to be having a lot of sex in order to be liberated, but for some women it is how they exercise their agency. Sex positive feminism is about helping folks be totally happy with their sex lives, whatever that may look like. Love sex; have lots of it, or don't, but whatever you do support other women's choices and don't contribute to the slut shaming culture we live in. . . #recipesforselflove #sex #sexpositive #life #bodypositive #allbodiesaregoodbodies #selflove #selfcare #loveyourself #smashthepatriarchy #youareperfect #lifestyle #@#$%&thepatriarchy #effyourbeautystandards #feminism #femme #intersectionalfeminist #feminsta #feminist #zine #illustration #digital #drawing #adobe #design #graphic #art #women #yourself
