Oct 25 - Nov 4 Ghazaleh Rastgar: "Venus Rising"
This body of work aims to shed light on the female sexuality which has been suppressed and commodified for at least the last millennia. There are many narratives attached to how, when and why a woman should accept and express herself physically. These standards are lopsided and were designed to keep women muzzled and subdued. I created these paintings to portray women unapologetic and in charge of reclaiming their true selves through something as human and natural as the body and sexuality.
