Although Kiki Kogelnik drew her palette and materials from Pop art, she eschewed the movement’s traditionally commercial subject matter, instead making work about emerging technologies such as space travel. “I’m not involved with Coca-Cola,” she once said. “I’m involved with the technical beauty of rockets.” When she did focus on advertising, it was from a critical feminist perspective. Many of Kogelnik’s works ironically draw on fashion illustration, offering a commentary on the portrayal of women in promotional media. Her career began in Europe among the abstract, expressive painters of the Art Informel movement, such as Arnulf Rainer, and peaked in America amid such Pop art pioneers as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol.
