The Female Gaze
by Jamie Azevedo
July 12 – August 30
Jamie Azevedo has always had a sense of wonder about the world she inhabits and has appreciated the art of sharing a good narrative. This inspired her to become a storyteller and so she pursued acting. It was while living in Manhattan, NY she was introduced and fell in love with the world of visual art.
Transitioning from the stage to two-dimensional work allowed her to have complete creative control as well as deeply explore themes such as interconnectedness and mutuality. Through this form of telling stories, she is also able to superimpose many of the lovely and funny conversations she has had with others in her work. She is inspired by the metaphysical world, history, meditation, laughter, mind-bending conversations,the game of “what if,” her amusing family, quirky humans, philosophy, and the ludicrous yet jubilant journey that we are all on together.
