THE GAZE – WHO IS THE SUBJECT?

This series of works on acetate explores the representation of women in art as both the artist and the subject. It asks the viewer to reflect upon whose gaze do they look through when viewing? Their own, the artists or the subject? The women in this series are powerful and bold eschewing your gaze. The paintbrush represents the women painting themselves how they want to be seen, taking control of themselves and their own image. The final images are the women breaking beyond the frame refusing to be captured by your gaze.
