The impact of women artists on the traditionally male-dominated field of Pop art is a topic one rarely hears about! The narrow definition of the Pop art movement and the women that have made itself reevaluate its critical reception. there are some poutrageous female artists that I want to introduce you to! So look forward to some great and fun art!
I hope you enjoy this post!
Kiki Kogelnik, who was born in Bleiburg , Australia in 1935 and studied art at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, began her career as a member of a circle of artists that included Arnulf Rainer.
Moving to Paris in 1959 and to New York in 1961, she worked in a mode that combined aspects of European figuration and American Pop Art with an increasing feminist consciousness. Sometimes her style mimicked fashion illustration to comment on society’s depiction of women.
Although painting was Ms. Kogelnik’s first medium, she also worked in cut-out vinyl, fiberglass and glass, and made prints and installation pieces. She had her first exhibition in New York in 1965 at the Austrian Institute.
