Female Artists, Female Bodies

For women, rules define a set of social expectations that are meant to keep them under control. In the arts, purportedly so much more liberal than the rest of society, this problem is acutely magnified, since culture tells us who we are, both literally and imaginatively. For the exhibition In the Pink at Joe Sheftel Gallery, which focuses on art about the female body, curator Sarvia Jasso has brought together a group of younger women artists with women artists from earlier generations

Flavorwire » A Survey of Klimt’s Sexiest Art for His 150th Birthday [NSFW]

“Klimt was exceptionally animal-like. His body exuded a peculiar odor. As a woman, one was really afraid of him.” These are the words of Hilde Roth, the beautiful Lady With Hat and Feather Boa, an eager subject from the storied artist’s muse collective, the models hanging about his studio in packs. Klimt was frank in his eroticism. He painted his models nude first, and then painted on clothes and surrounded them with the atmospheric blood of gilded detail, as discovered after his death when The Bride was left unfinished and exposed. Similarly, Klimt himself was known for wearing a long robe with no undergarments.

Artists statement

As humans, we live in the present, yet we are influenced by our past and our subconscious mind. Sexuality is one of the main forces that permeates the border between thought and reality, triggers occur, sensations are experienced, heart flutterings, mental images popping up when least expected. I paint about sex and relationships. My colour palette is sometimes lurid, sometimes tranquil, somewhat like the colours and emotions of sex. In this series I convey the feeling of the act, challenging the viewer to gaze beyond the physicality of the representation. This work explores the cognitive element of sexuality. Here are consenting adults portrayed in sexy clinches. It’s playful and fun, to elicit a smile, or a wink and nudge, a memory or perhaps a tingle down your spine.
