What are the ethics of using images of your children in your art?

Updated: Dec 10, 2019


I'm feeling a little sad today as my children have requested some of their pictures connected to my art practice be removed from my social media. Of course I will respect their wishes. I can only hope that as adults they may change their mind. There are so many artists I respect who have also used images of their children in their art. This has intensified the need to have a discussion within contemporary art practice and maternal subjectivity around the use of children and their images in arts practice. So many ethical questions and concerns. Anyone else interested in this idea please message below...I hope to continue this discussion on my Artist Page so please like my page if you wish to be involved... https://www.facebook.com/penelopeanndavis/
