Gwen Shockey

I am culminating an incredible month at Elsewhere Studios feeling inspired, refreshed and renewed. I spent the month working on new drawings,  exploring Paonia and getting to know the many wonderful people who make Paonia a truly creative and progressive town. I will truly miss being here! Love and peace, Gwen ShockeyImage


About Gwen

Gwen Shockey is a visual artist currently living in New York City and working as an artist, medical illustrator and non-profit consultant.

Gwen’s artwork deals with the concept of rethinking and reassembling the framework of the visually represented female body. She considers subversive desire and eroticism in relation to a history of “looking” upon the unclothed woman. She examines LGBT and female identity narrative and symbolic imagery.

Gwen received her B.A. from Connecticut College in 2010 with a degree in fine art, psychology and gender studies. She pursues studio and curatorial work as well as LGBT and women’s empowerment through art practices internationally.
