Sara Charlesworth 

Born 1947, East Orange, New Jersey.

Charlesworth made part of the exhibition Pictures of Generation, an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that featured 160 works in all media by thirty artist  between the decades of 70’s and 80’s. 

The series Objects of Desire is full of lively colours which express the culture of seduction. Most of the objects that Charlesworth used were placed there to enhance their use as part of the seductive game. “In Figures (1983), for example, a movie star’s clingy silver gown is matched with a satin bondage suit, conveying the sense of an uncomfortable eroticism beneath the dress’s superficial glamour.”
