Curated Art Collection: She-Magic

Every month we present a curated collection of artwork. This week's Curated Art Collection is all on the theme of She-Magic.  As in the sparkle in an unusual action and the serious mystery captured in a moment's expressions and postures. What are they doing? What are they thinking? I love when a piece of art catches me by surprise and I can't help considering the figure's enigmatic expression.  Featuring art by: Ali King, Serena Stevens, Oleg Oprisco, Paul X. Johnson, and Rosie Hardy. The actions and expressions of the female figures are surprising and catch me off guard in the best way.
