Getting to Know Melanie

Melanie Posner’s body of work is about self-love and embracing the female body. She is inspired by independent, joyful women who respect their bodies in spite of societal norms that dictate standards for beauty. “Painting ladies who love themselves and their bodies helped me, in return, to love my flaws,” says Melanie. “I paint in vibrant colors because it fills me with happiness.” The artist uses collage and oils to bring life to female figures of varying physiques. The work not only critiques the pressure on women to be thin and beautiful, but also empowers and celebrates body positivity.
