Being Free is an exhibition of paintings by multidisciplinary artist Deborah Segun whose work celebrates the diverse bodies of women through shape and color, portraiture and narrative, creating an important counter-point to society’s patriarchal notions of an “ideal woman”. Combining abstraction and figuration, Segun recomposes shapes to create voluptious figures in varied, graceful poses which celebrate the subject and imbue the viewer with a deep sense of admiration. In her paintings, her subjects maintain a steady and relaxed gaze which represents a shift in focus from typical male-centered standards of beauty. Segun’s work is a step towards claiming a new sense of freedom through art.
 
“Freeing yourself was one thing,
claiming ownership of that freed self was another.”

Toni Morrison, Nobel Laureate
