Just for Men 1
I am a man and I make art about men. I was first inspired by feminist artists; by studying one’s own group—its appearance, its role in society, its portrayal in the media, etc.—it is possible to make work that is personal and universal.
Men have fewer options than women for personal styling in our society. Nature may take away the hair on a man’s head, but it may also give him facial hair that can be dealt with creatively and meaningfully. The goatee, or vandyke beard, is both a convention and a distinguishing feature, drawing attention to the mouth.
This series of prints explores the variations that come from the contours of the individual’s face, the amount and character of his hair, and the color, of course, which can be enhanced with products such as “Just for Men”, so named to reassure the insecure.
The views expressed by our artists in their artist statements do not necessarily represent the views of our art galleries. Artists can be visually expressive but may verbally misrepresent their true intentions or ideas. Please note that we support expression, whether it is controversial or not, but our intention is never to offend.
