Priya Assal Gheysari, San Francisco Member Since March 2008 Artist Statement My work represents woman who embody wholeness-the good, the bad and everything in between.
It seems that from whichever angle I look at the feminine, she shakes me to my bones with her beauty and power.
Endlessly, I am drawn to paint her with all of her faces and in all of her colors and expressions-
Through my art, I extend this message to the world:
“…Be free to be everything that you are; to say everything that your heart must say; to do everything that you are here to do, because when we are authentic and powerful in the face of our fears and doubts, we are creating a future for ourselves and for others that is deeply worth living into.
