We love Gwenn Seemel and her colorful portraits.
We especially love her book Crime Against Nature. A little about this book from Gwenn:
What do single moms, stay-at-home dads, professionals who happen to be women, men who like to dress colorfully, infertile people, and homosexuals have in common? They’re often viewed by society as sad, bad, and even a little suspicious.
Those judgments all stem originally from one idea: that females are naturally passive and more caring, and males are naturally aggressive and more intelligent. It’s an idea that is deeply embedded in our social system and dictates much of our behavior. It’s also an idea that has nothing to do with what is actually going on in nature.
Crime Against Nature, both as a book and as a series of paintings, exposes the true diversity of natural behaviors.
We used three of her pieces to create a series of blank greeting cards for you.
