We present a new work by Kasia Bielska Bluff, which will be available for purchase this Saturday and Sunday at the TARGI RZECZY ŁADNYCH and in our online store.
The central composition and tight frame contribute to the erotic vibe that gives so much strength to Kasia Bielska’s work titled ‘Bloom’. The piece has been captured in a style that is associated with a certain vision of innocence, communicated in the most natural and direct way, unfettered by the traditional constraints of shame. This allows us to read this image as an acceptance of female empowerment, body positivity and – what is so evident in the current imagery of well-known fashion and lifestyle publications of our time, shaped in great measure by the female gaze – to take over the male vision that has dictated the idea of the ‘weaker sex’ for so many centuries.
