“Embracing Women” Clare O Hagan’s Series of Erotic Prints and Drawings
Embracing Women features a series of some fifty drawings and prints created over a period of two decades. Based on life drawing studies, each artwork explores female sexuality through O Hagan’s personal vision:
“I’m acutely aware, as a feminist, of the restrictive and commodified depiction of women’s bodies in both advertising and pornography” O Hagan writes. “I really felt compelled to create work that rejected the stereotype of women’s subordination as erotic. I wanted to construct a broader view of a woman’s experience of sexuality.”
Embracing Women has been exhibited in the UK, Summer 2019, and The Erotic Heritage Museum, Las Vegas, USA from 1st June through to 31st August 2018.
