Grace Boileau

Smoke and Mirrors
Oil on canvas
24″ x 32″

In a world consumed by a person’s outer appearance, Grace Boileau is an artist attempting to tackle the concept of an internalized male gaze. Trying to find her own sense of beauty and ideality through the movement of paint across the canvas that looks to over shadow the dominating internalization. To gaze is to decide, to interpret what one is seeing and what it means, but what happens when that understanding is already predetermined? What happens to one’s self-identityand self-love? Gaze into the looking glass, what do you see?
