Sensual Stories Unveiled: The Art of the Female Gesture

Step into a realm where sensuality meets empowerment at “Sensual Stories Unveiled: The Art of the Female Gesture” exhibition, curated by artists BareNaked Tiffany and Genea Morrow. Through expressive pieces that delve into the complexities of women’s relationships with their bodies and nudity, the artists invite you to explore the diverse and profound celebration of body positivity and uninhibited sensuality. Inspired by their own journeys and influences, Tiffany’s figurative pieces serve as mirrors of radical self-acceptance, while Genea’s exploration of light and shadow accentuates the depth and complexity of the female form.

From mixed mediums such as gold gilding, glitter, and acrylic paint, their artwork captures the beauty and sensuality of the female form, offering a sanctuary of unapologetic appreciation and acceptance. These artists use these mediums to accentuate and captivate the viewer’s eye to the female form. Experience the artistry and celebrate the diverse forms and stories of women embodied in this exhibition.

Tickets are available here and be sure to use the promo code “SEAF-Family” for 50% off entry.

Genea Morrow is a self-taught artist and creative entrepreneur based out of Seattle. Her interest in art began in 2012 but it wasn’t until 2021 when Genea launched Black Omi Art Co. Though her journey wasn’t always easy, she often opens up about her struggles with imposter syndrome and how she continuously works on her insecurities surrounding her late start to painting. She now creates paintings that tell her story, a story heavily influenced by her history with religion and spirituality, overshadowed by her exploration of her sensuality. Her work is centered around creating the feeling of familiarity, power, and freedom through promoting body positivity within our communities. To highlight the internal battles of feminine and masculine energies women may feel. 

BareNaked Tiffany is a Sex and Body Positive Artist, creating art that allows women to reclaim their bodies and sexuality.

“I strive for a world of sizzling body love with  my figurative art, where every stroke celebrates the female form in all its diversity and sensuality. In a world plagued by societal pressures and misconceptions, my work boldly challenges these norms, proclaiming the inherent worthiness of every woman’s body and pleasure. Through the opulence of color and form, I invite you to embrace the unrivaled beauty of the body without inhibition, offering a sanctuary of unapologetic appreciation and acceptance.”

In addition to the large pieces in this exhibition, we will be showcasing smaller works and merchandise by both artists, as well as past SEAF artists. Come enjoy the art, and maybe even fall in love and take something home!
