About Her Art
In a way, Sievert’s art reverses the dynamics of the “male gaze” narrative with it, for the artist, a woman, is the one looking at and capturing the men, objectifying them in the form of visual artworks. Sievert forces the viewer to reassess any preconceptions of what muse and artist should look like.
