Artist Patricia Ariel Launches Fundraising for Women-Focused Project
“Changing Woman” is about twenty-one art portraits for women's empowerment and awareness of women's issues.
By: Patricia Ariel
illustrator. She has created images that have been licensed in several products
and published and collected all over the world.
This project's goal is to tell twenty-one stories of “Changing Women” in form of
art portraits. Patricia wants to create pieces portraying women from different
backgrounds, that have struggled for acceptance and equality in the
contemporary model of society. By showing women that, against all odds, have
found their inner strength and thrived, the artist hopes to enhance their power
and make of them models and a voice for all women that have struggled with the
challenges to be themselves and embrace their own choices.
“Even with the advancement of human rights, there is still a lot to be done
regarding to women's issues and empowerment,”
overlooks their needs and fails in providing them with the respect they deserve.
Women still feel that their voices do not matter much, and they lack consistent,
accessible role models to mirror themselves and say, 'hey, I can do it too!'
I want to show that every one of them can be a valuable force towards the
changes we want to see in our society.”
The “Changing Woman” is a myth of the` Navajo people, and represents the
personification of the Earth, the seasons, and the cycles of life. Nothing more
appropriate to represent woman’s strengths, their nurturing nature, but also their
huge capacity to change themselves and the world around them.
The funds generated from this campaign will cover the costs of quality art
supplies, and general expenses like professional scanning, printing, and
framing, among others. The final artworks will be displayed in an art show and
featured in a book. Proceeds from the sales of prints and books will support an
organization for the protection of women.
