Blue Women Group...

Yves Klein
Shaire De Mondo Cane
Dry Pigment Synthetic Resolution Gauze

1. What do I see?
-Women's bodies in blue on a canvas
I see a form of digression.
2. What does it reminds you of?
-Reminds me of X-rays/naked women/infrared technology/photo negative.
3. What feelings-if any does it raise?
4. What questions does it raise?
-WHY?!!!!!!!!!! Do these women have morals? Why did they choose to do this piece?
5. What can you synthesize from this as far as what the content is?
-The beauty of the human body...the [possible] obsession Yves Klein had with women.

My thoughts
-WHen I first saw this piece, I froze. I immediately felt anger, and disgust.
Why? Why is it okay for women to parade around naked covered in paint and pose on a canvas?
I a was/still am disgusted.
