Unafraid of The Shadows
by indrani kopal

I tried to answer couple of questions that many people raised in the past during the rise of feminine arts, and see if those questions still relevant in today’s culture. The questions are:

1. Can a woman artist necessarily capture an unconventional frame and produce a different imagery of female nudity from her male counterpart?

2. Will an ordinary woman open herself up genuinely and expressively to a female artist because she now no longer carry the burden of a male gaze?
