Sea(see) by Jeanette Spicer, 2018, signed

Sea(see) is a photographic documentation of a relationship over the course of a year. This work was an opportunity for me explore and express my female gaze upon female body. I was able to claim my power in that, and she was able to claim her power in how she expressed herself with me, and for the camera; to be seen over and over again in many ways. The pausing and stillness of time let me contemplate, re visit and attempt to understand my partner. Being intimate with the female body was new to me; informing the cut offs of the figure and concentration on shoulders, the back, crotch, butt and legs which allowed me to evaluate, compare and comprehend. The ambiguity of her masculinely feminine figure made her body that much more intriguing, familiar, yet unfamiliar.

Jeanette Spicer (b.1988, Baltimore, MD) is a New York based artist who creates performative videos, photographs, and mixed media to generate opportunity for collaboration between herself, partners, friends and family members that allow her to engage and interact with them in alternatively intimate ways. She is curious about how the body can hold intimacy, restraint, and a space of reclaiming - both physically and psychologically, along with the engagement of activities with other bodies that already carry a connection with one another; through the work, these questions and desires become nameable and physical. She is an adjunct professor at The International Center of Photography, School of Visual Arts, and Pratt Institute.
