High Femme

High Femme

© Circé

oil on canvas

30in. x 48in.

Originally conceived and created as part of a larger Queer Lives series, Ms. Circe offers a sensual and stunning take on not only the visibility of queer women, but also a non-conformist portrayal of an unapologetic sexual woman.  Juxtaposed within the classical portraiture milieu we are dramatically given a moment of relaxed, confident sexuality.  Beautifully captured and portrayed Ms. Circe choses to show a confidence that confronts the viewer and asks that we linger in this captured moment, where queerness and marginalized identity has never been presented in such an archetypal and simply stunning way.  Ms. Circe continues to examine important questions about feminism and female representation in her art, unafraid of the sexual politics that have often been a centric controversial element in deconstructing feminist art practice.  Ms. Circe offers an intriguing and powerful image of female sexuality in her continued exploration of what has historically been the site of women’s oppression.
