"Seen and Not Heard (1)" - Empowering Feminine Wall Art

Step into the bold and provocative world of J. Brooke Wade with "Seen and Not Heard (1)," the inaugural piece in a captivating watercolor series that boldly champions the voices of women. This original watercolor painting, rich in narrative and symbolism, portrays the powerful image of a woman’s lips delicately holding a human eye. This striking motif serves as a potent critique of the societal expectations that urge women to remain silent and submissive.

Artistic Representation and Symbolism

The artwork uses a vivid palette to emphasize the lush, full lips against a dynamic, multicolored backdrop, creating a striking contrast that draws the viewer’s eye directly to the center of the conflict. The inclusion of a uniquely colored eye, vivid and expressive, adds a layer of depth, symbolizing the overlooked perspectives and silenced voices in our society.

Technique and Impact

Wade's technique in watercolor brings out the fluidity and transient nature of expression, using water and pigment to depict a scene that is both ephemeral yet impactful. The painting not only challenges viewers to acknowledge the presence and power of women but also demands recognition of their voices and stories. It is a perfect statement piece for any collection, particularly in spaces dedicated to modern feminist art and discussions around gender roles.

Aesthetic Experience and Dialogue

For collectors and admirers of thought-provoking art, "Seen and Not Heard (1)" offers a unique aesthetic experience that blends artistic craftsmanship with social commentary. It is an ideal addition to both home and professional settings, inviting viewers to engage in meaningful dialogue about the complexities of identity and expression in contemporary society.

Helpful Information

  1. Do you use any digital or Artificial Intelligence software?
    No. All J. Brooke Wade's artwork is traditional, in that it uses watercolor as a medium and is not digitally generated or edited.
  2. What types of frames do you recommend for these watercolor prints?
    We recommend frames with UV protection to prevent fading and maintain the vibrancy of your watercolor prints. Our range includes various framing options, each designed to complement the unique style of our artworks.
  3. What is the difference between a print and an original painting?
    An original painting is the unique artwork created directly by the artist. A print is a high-quality reproduction of this original piece.
  4. How are prints made and what makes them special?
    Prints are created by digitizing the original artwork using a high-quality scanner, designed specially for artwork. They are then reproduced on quality paper designed for longevity and to closely match the original. Some prints are part of limited runs, making them more unique and collectible.
  5. Do your prints have boarders?
    Prints that match the original artwork size do not have borders; they feature full-bleed printing, allowing the color to extend to the edges of the paper. For prints that differ in size from the original, we include a border to ensure the artwork is scaled proportionally to the desired dimensions.
