“The Female Gaze” by artist Jamie Azevedo is a series of images of the female form in motion, exploring what it feels like to inhabit the female body.
According to the artist: “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 cannot 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.”
Azevedo will contribute $50 from each piece sold in the show to an educational scholarship through the Williston State College Foundation to assist in funding a young woman’s studies.
