“The Female Gaze”

The Female Gaze opposes the idea of the male gaze. The painting makes reference to the theoretical term, the female gaze. This theoretical term refers to a female’s perspective, rather than a male’s viewpoint. The painting itself was created from the perspective of a women. As a result, the women in the painting is not being objectified even though she is naked. The woman in the painting views her sexuality as its own entity separate from the male gaze. Rather than be an object of a mans affection and lust, she sits alone confidently enjoying her femininity, sexuality, and body.
