For centuries men have controlled the way women’s bodies have been represented in art and culture. By repainting these female forms, Cassie Gnehm is taking back control of the female figure. She works from installations of open books and post cards of historical figure paintings scattered on the studio floor and then paints them from life. These observational oil paintings comment on the male gaze of artist throughout art history while overlaying features of contemporary women.
