Jillian Shea

I recently had a fight with my mother about selling explicit images online and what it means for the perception of my image and character. She, like many, holds conservative views of the body and its value as it moves from the private to the public. I am thinking about the relationship between the “art nude” and pornographic presentations of the body. The art historical canon depicts these bodies through a male gaze, passively available. Bodies in contemporary digital pornographic imagery are doing the opposite. They are engaging directly with the viewer, presenting themselves actively, eroticizing themselves. Society passes judgment on folks, especially women, for presenting themselves sexually to the public. Does a painting present the same confrontation to the viewer?
This body of work is also a very personal exploration for me. It is another step in my journey, of my sexual liberation. There are so many pressures put on young women from society, their parents, the people they date, etc., to be so many things. Be pretty, but don’t show it, be sexy, but only in private, post hot pictures, but don’t profit. I own my body, no one else. I am proud of my body and what it has survived. I enjoy showing myself off. Shame is a cruel weapon that I have internalized for too long.
