The Female Gaze by artist Jamie Azevedo is a series of images of the female form in motion, exploring what it feels like to inhabit the female form. According to Azevedo: All of us are wrapped up in fragile bodies subjected to abuse and annihilation. But we also possess creative minds, which can empower and enlighten others. As we females stand on the shoulders of the countless brave women who have helped pave the path towards our own insight and successes, let us remember that we are much more than our bodies. And we can not be contained.I hope these portraits remind you that we are resilient, creative energies capable of brilliance, transcendence, and grace. May each generation of women make life inside the female form better for the next.

The exhibition is on display at the MonDak from January 15 to February 23. Azevedo will contribute $50 from each piece sold in the show to an educational scholarship through the Williston State College Foundation to assist in funding a young woman’s studies.

Jamie Azevedo grew up in rural North Carolina. 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. Her work has been shown in galleries throughout the United States. Currently, she lives North Dakota with her husband and chocolate lab, ZuZu.
