Vanessa Lamournier de Assis is able to express very raw and strong emotions through her body of work. At times, her work can get quite gruesome, violent and dark. The subjects of her art are mainly women and her pictures describe a sort of brutality that these women are subject to. Violence against women, whether it be physical or emotional, still affects a part of the population to this day.
Vanessa Lamournier de Assis chooses to use her subjects in revealing and intimate shots, allowing the viewer to enter into the lives of these women. I believe her artistry leads to a sense of empowerment for women through this revelation and exposition. Her art continues to uncover the nature of violence against women and heal them through the medium of craft.
