From the statues of Greek goddesses to the Renaissance paintings to modern art, the depiction of women in visual arts has come a long way. For a very long time, the world of art was dominated by what we call a ‘male gaze’ which didn’t always give the right idea of the female body image, but these times have changed. Today, we can see more and more female artists joining the field who managed to portray women in a more complex and powerful way.
Anna Kincaide is one of those artists. There is something truly fascinating about her work as she is hiding her women’s faces behind the giant floral headpieces. This is her way to make the viewer wonder who are these anonymous women and what are their stories?
Anna grew up in northern Florida. And this is where she lives and works today. Even though, she got a degree in interior and graphic design, she has always had a passion for fine arts and painting.
