Selfie With Political Causes

‘Selfie with Political Causes’ is a limited edition of 68 etching in Perry’s unique aesthetic of clashing, saturated colours and flat, juvenile perspective.

The selfie shows Perry as his alter-ego Clare in full hair, make up and dress embellished with ‘peace’ riding a Harley Davidson emblazoned with the words ‘Social Justice’, ‘Equality’ and ‘Identity’ in blood red.

Fuelled by racism, sexism and poverty the exhaust expels democracy, free-speech and tolerance whilst smashing homophobia and trampling tax evasion. A highly political piece, as the title suggests, Perry describes ‘Selfie with Political Causes’ as “A reaction to the way that politics has become very fashionable in art.”

About the artist
+

Winner of the 2003 Turner Prize, prolific contemporary artist Grayson Perry is known for his penchant for cross-dressing, his air of eccentricity, and his deviously brilliant ceramics, tapestries, paintings, etchings and limited edition prints. 

Dissecting British prejudices, fashions, and foibles, Perry juxtaposes decorative clichés with depictions of brutality. Chintzy flowers adorn weapons of war – the lion lays down with the lamb – to distort classical forms of beauty and to challenge cultural norms. 

Perry’s work is underpinned by a strong autobiographical element, as self-portraits of himself as alter-ego Claire, as well as depictions of his childhood teddy bear, Alan Measles, are repeated throughout his oeuvre, building a sense of personal and psychological continuity.
