Emma Coyle: The Best Revenge

Helwaser Gallery / New York / Art

The Irish artist Emma Coyle draws inspiration from old advertisements, magazines, and Pop art. In technicolor, she creates graphic paintings of women, paying homage to artists such as Andy Warhol, but she’s pulled her gals out from under the male gaze. Coyle’s women are feminists. They take up entire large-scale canvases, struttingly stylish against monochrome backgrounds. A student of Pop art, Coyle lets the lighthearted genre speak of a more equitable world. —C.M.
