It's a subject which has arisen before, hasn't it. Still kinda irritates me too.
To start with, when people happen to remark on the huge amount of females in art compared to males, I notice that a lot of females blame "sexist" male artists who go for big boobs and butts.
Actually, from observation I've noted that most male artists have a tendency to go for landscapes, nature photography, and more technical type pictures.
Thus, this female obsession is not coming from them, but female artists themselves. I use the word 'obsession' because, just as an example in the style of photo manipulation, it would seem placing a female in your art has almost become mandatory...?! With such a massive output of such pictures, hasn't it become rather common and uninspiring? It rarely varies either... have we not all seen the female in the flowing dress looking wistful or melancholy?
Ironic too, isn't it... if a male artist portrays a heap of semi erotic males in his gallery, he would probably be considered gay. If a female artist portrays other women this way, this is not naturally assumed.
I adore the male form and appreciate his role in art. I do not think there is anything special or better about the female form. And I'm further perplexed on why males are often overlooked by female artists.
