Much of Gabrielle Brant Freeman’s poetry centers on women: women's sexuality, women's bodies, women's empowerment. These paintings reflect not only the strength, both physical and emotional, of the female characters in the poems, but also the idea of women taking up space. The figures are shown as confident in their bodies and in their spaces, and this confidence gives them a voice.
