Alina Zamanova’s paintings are centred around the representation of modern reality, where women’s bodies are embraced in all shapes and focused to portray their distortions without societal norms labelled on them. Being inspired by muses around the world,  Zamanova recently draws from her own experience on a psychological level of upbringing to expose both physical and mental sides of humanity.  The concepts that the artist investigate involve human relationships and hidden stereotypical behaviours, how societal norms’ ability distort the perception of our existence and views on our bodies and the connection of humans to nature. 
 
Since ancient times, art has been dedicated to the depiction of beauty and belonged to men. Accordingly, the image of women in this was subordinated to the desires and needs of one of the sexes. The theme of the female gaze is often associated with the destruction of bodily and other stereotypes towards women generated by the male gaze. The female gaze confronts the created ideal of beauty, which imposes specific standards that she must meet. Zamanova’s paintings depict precisely the women who are both confident and vulnerable in their chosen environment and portray the shift of power that women take back over their image and body.
