In this article which we have aptly named ‘pictures of womens art’, we aim to show how female artists are taking back control over femininity and the female form. Too often, the search results for an image of women will result in something vulgar and out of the women’s control. However, these artists have shown they are here to change the way women’s bodies are used in art.
Before you read this post, you may also like to read our previous article about these woman photo and digital artists to watch. This post goes into the stories behind the careers of incredible women.
Artists Who Honour Femininity
Of course, not all female artists use portraits or the female body as the main subject area for their work. Contemporary painter Sara Pope has chosen to use female-appearing lips as the main focus of her work. Focussing on this important area of the body that can represent so many emotions, feelings, experiences and senses of a woman. Her work captures the emotions of the models immaculately and has captured the essence of femininity. Her work fits in any area of the home and office where you need to inject life and energy, as it is thought-provoking and eye-catching.
Eve de Haan
Eve de Haan is all about trying new things, exploring and allowing herself to express herself. Eve de Haan is a natural storyteller and has chosen to use her skills in expression to make everyday life beautiful, emotive and spectacular. Eve de Haan focuses on using themes of youth, culture and relationships in her work.
Eve de Haan is a prime example of how females can finally use their innate abilities to tell stories and have the world take notes. For too many years, women have been in the background and the side characters of their own stories, and Eve de Haan is a pioneer in championing storytelling from a female perspective through her neon art medium.
Nana del Riego
One of our featured artists, Nana del Riego, is all about using femininity and seeking ownership over the female form as a woman in art. Nana del Riego’s art primarily focuses on self-portrait work that uses colour and other bold forms of expression, such as her poses and facial expressions. Nana del Riego’s art is photography with an element of digital art, and her work is inspirational to many of the themes of feminism that run through her collection. Nana del Riego’s goal is to reduce stereotypes of the female form and take ownership of female bodies back into the hands of female artists.
Read about Nana del Riego’s unique backstory and her inspiration in our previous article, Cuban artists everyone should know about.
Mairi-Luise Tabbakh is a name known to many in the photography community as she stands out for her erotic work. Tabbakh shoots almost exclusively in black and white to allow for the scene to take centre stage. Mairi-Luise Tabbakh exclusively uses the same form to enhance the women’s curves with typically masculine props such as guns and other weapons. When it comes to what it means to be a woman images by Mairi-Luise Tabbakh can showcase this perfectly. Her iconic photography is a force to be reckoned with and can go down in history books for enhancing the feminist movement.

There is also a womans photo taken by none other than David Bailey from his collection Archival Inkjet. The photo ‘Catherine Bailey’ is a favourite among many art enthusiasts.
We also host a collection of the vibrant work by Nana del Riego, including her self-portraits, such as ‘Popland III’ and ‘Heritage’. We love showcasing Nana del Riego’s images of woman hood as she takes the female form and captures femininity back into the hands of women.
