Challenging Female Form in Art

Featured image: Jessalyn Brooks

Los Angeles based artist, Jessalyn Brooks, is recreating female form through avant-garde interpretation.

Inspired by form in movement, the beautifully obscure sketches focus on line and shape. In this way, the artwork presents a stripped-back depiction of the body, hence the confinements of beauty standards such as body size, skin tone and hair texture are blissfully absent.

It’s refreshing to see female form in such an abstract yet identifiable manner.

This heat is killing me ⚰️
