About

Jaz Harold is a New York / Tokyo based fine artist. Her work explores the connection between the ego, feminism, sexuality, and the flow of both inter- and intra-personal energy. Recent pieces have been 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. Using an aesthetic that consciously appeals to child-like naïveté, Jaz’s work softens the emphasis on the ego, ritual, intimacy, and stigma that society generally attaches to sex.
