What are they about, these paintings of exaggerated women

in which a melt-down of fashion melds with the animal? Are they a serious critique of consumerism and social media, or is Anna Pogudz just gently poking fun? Is she in the tradition of Alex Katz’s painterly pop, or might we do better to look to fellow Pole Natalia LL’s still-pertinent 1970’s deconstructions of the nature of consumer desire?  It soon becomes obvious that we can play it either way. It’s like getting the pictures from the celebrity-worshipping magazine Hello in an edition of The Society of the Spectacle.
