Sexism Project: Top Pop Woman Artists
This work is for the “Sexism” Project, a project to highlight the indifferences and inequalities between woman and male Artist in the high end Art Market, with,
“only 1 out of 100 of the top lots sold at auction in 2015 was by a woman, and none of the world’s Top Ten richest living artist artists are woman”
And the artwork will be promoted for International Woman’s Day on 8th March.
Within my practice, I have been influenced by several women Artists, and frequently make Art inspired by Tracey Emin RA, one of the Young British Artists in 80s and now a Royal Academician of the Royal Academy of Arts, London, UK. I particularly like her modified ready-made objects, “My Bed” (unmade dirty bed), “The last thing I said to you was don’t leave me here” 1999 (The Hut) and later works, fabric quilts Blankets “Hotel International” 1993, “Love Poem” 1996 “Never Forget” and Monoprints such as Bird & Heart Drawings “Bird Drawings”, inspiring my Monoprints series of works.
Within this work, I have made a list of my favourite Woman Artists, arrange aphetically by surnames, starting from the far top left column, at “Fiona Banner”, then “Tracey Emin”, and wrapping the text around, onto the next column, which follows a sequence or order known as “Conceptual Art” and finishing on the far right column with “Rachel Whiteread”, and contains 16 Woman Artists.
I have used the colour Pink to give a Post Pop Art feel and highlight Woman inequalities, with the use of vertical columns, and influenced by Artfinder’s “Cheeky Dot” circle.
For clarity of Artist names the last image has the circle removed.
