The Female Gaze
This body of work explores what it feels like to inhabit the female form. All of us are wrapped up in fragile bodies subjected to abuse and annihilation. But we also possess creative minds which can empower and enlighten others. As we females stand on the shoulders of the countless brave women who have helped pave the path towards our own insight and successes, let us remember that we are much more than our bodies. And we will not be contained. I hope these portraits remind you that we are resilient, creative energies capable of brilliance, transcendence, and grace. May each generation of women make life inside the female form better for the next.
This gallery exhibits the start of a series which will explore historical episodes from the perspective of those who were not in power. I'm in the process of researching right now and hope to have a cohesive show completed by the fall of 2019. Consider these images "sketches" as this body of work is in progress.
