Banks artist Marina Alana is among the many artists who have been criticised for depicting women in an inappropriate manner.
The Australian singer and songwriter has also been criticised by feminist activists who claim that the portrayal of women in her films has made them seem unattractive and unlovable.
A spokeswoman for Marina Alanas said the artist was “very proud” of the images, but did not wish to discuss them.
“I think it’s really important to be mindful of who we’re representing and what we’re doing with those images,” she said.
“There’s a whole spectrum of what we can do with them.”
She said the artwork was created by Alana as a way to highlight a particular aspect of art.
“We wanted to make sure that these images were very personal, very specific, very personal,” Ms Alana said.
A spokesperson for Alana’s label said the images were created by her artist as a means to highlight some specific aspect of Art.
The artist, who has released five albums and five singles over the past three decades, said she had always been passionate about the issue.
“As a feminist artist, I have always been a feminist and this was always part of my journey,” she told the ABC.
“So I’m very proud of it.”
The artist’s music videos are not the only examples of artistic female artists who are criticised for portraying women in a way that is too harsh.
In a recent episode of reality show, RuPaul’s Drag Race, the winner of the show, Trinity Jones, is asked by a fan to pose for a photo with a doll who looks like she is in a bikinis.
The contestant’s choice to pose in lingerie makes it seem like she’s not interested in interacting with her fellow contestants.
Ms Jones, who won the season five competition, said in a statement the video was meant to be playful.
“The way it was presented was meant as a joke, not to offend anyone,” she wrote in a Facebook post.
“It was meant for entertainment and to give the viewer something to laugh at, to make a joke out of something that is so obviously a real thing.”
