The Gaze – Acrylic on Linen 44″x94″ Lisa Sette GalleryFor my painting entitled “The Gaze”, I have been watching, listening and thinking about how old standards of white patriarchal dominance continue to play their power games, especially in politics. The static, rigid & obstructive practices of this old rubric are reminiscent of immovable blocks – continually making life uncomfortable for others. I believe in the cracks. I believe in nature’s balance. I believe in the power of growth and equanimity. I believe that change is coming.
