Clare O Hagan’s new exhibition embraces women and the erotic
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.”
This work will be in exhibition in the UK, Summer 2019
Embracing Women was in exhibition at the Erotic Heritage Museum
