Jessica Hazell is a self-taught painter from Queensland, Australia. She moved to London in 2017 to further enhance her practice and focus on her creative career. Now residing in East London, she focuses on oil paintings that illustrate feminine energy, power and cultivation. With a strong emphasis on reclaiming human sexuality from society set standards and expectations, she has found a passionate and thought-provoking subject matter that seeks to portray eroticism as a way to reconnect with one's self and discover a higher level of self-love. Jess's body of work is a narrative that works to highlight feminist issues and empower women by exposing the raw beauty of feminine energy. Jess has had numerous exhibitions across London and recently has exhibited her work in shows in Prague and Athens.
"It is important and always will be that art be a strong advocate in fighting for female empowerment, equality and body-positivity because as long as the patriarchy still exists, the media exists, toxic masculinity exists, we have to keep educating people about why it doesn’t work and why it assaults our basic human rights".
