This artwork shows the weight of pressure and pain of the toxic beauty standards created by the fashion industry. In the art piece, the corset-shaped rib caged is almost deformed and destroyed, symbolizing anorexic illness. The deformed movement is caused by the pressure from the negativity and toxicity of the beauty standards. The use of beautiful items such as vibrant colors such as pink, yellow, and orange and the use of flowers surrounding the background, represents a type of distraction or mask to hide away the true reality of the industry.
