Cahn's work

Miriam Cahn Miriam Cahn Galerie Jocelyn Wolff

Cahn's paintings and drawings incorporate feminism themes and female rituals; featuring "violent and shocking representations of sexual organs". They are often created using unorthodox methods. Cahn's first exhibition was Being a Women in My Public Role in 1979. Cahn's first exhibition in the United States was at the Elizabeth Dee Gallery, New York City, in 2011. Cahn's work has been said to show influence by the Neo-Expressionism movement.

    Jörg Scheller describes Cahn as a "feminist who likes to fight." Schorgg comments that Cahn's pieces have a tone he describes as a "deceptive calm", though Export et al. note the "wild sketching" as a key element to the tension between cultural influences in her work.
