About

 

Jaz Harold is a New York based fine artist. Her work explores the connection between the ego, feminism, and sexuality with themes revolving around catharsis, growth, and the flow of both inter- and intra-personal energy. Using an aesthetic that consciously appeals to child-like naïveté, the works are soft and inviting, rich with plush fabrics, yarns, and pastel hues. Her use of flower motifs connect the ideas of growth, femininity, sexuality, and love; while the repeated use of crystals represent growth within energy flows.
