Owning my gaze.


I find that in order for my art to be relevant, I must speak about what matters to me as a woman. I can only be the owner of what emanates from my gaze as an artist. My desire is to paint on topics that lends voice to my own gender and sex as a woman, to speak about queer women, erotica from a woman’s point of view, about struggles and social injustices towards women is what vibrates within me.

    Hello, welcome and thank you Stella, I read the letter to a younger self you have on your Blog and it makes me want to express something similar on canvas, now to only figure out the how. I am so touched by this letter, thank you for the Follow as it gave me the gift of discovering your Blog. 🙂

    I agree, wholeheartedly.
    It is important for queer women to make their voices heard.

      Hi Dalia,

      Yes, the whole of me as I observe and interpret life around me is an intrinsic part of what is viewed in my art by onlookers and it is important to me that it be clear of where I’m coming from; my queerness, my feminism, my views as a woman as well as my training as a more classic type of artist, it all goes into my drawings and paintings.

      The three aspects that one can readily come across in my art are; erotica, feminist and women’s issues and queer women pieces. There may be other aspects ( series ) to come later on but these are my major undertakings for now.
