Revenge Body” by Emma Stern at Carl Kostyál Gallery, London

Revenge Body” by Emma Stern at Carl Kostyál Gallery, London

Carl Kostyál London is hosting  Revenge Body which is Emma Stern’s first solo show with the gallery. The exhibition is open from 13th May to 12th June 2021.

Inspired by the visual vocabulary of online niche subcultures like fursonas, fandom, and 3D erotica, Stern carefully plays on the quasi-pornographic representation of women in the virtual world, combining conventional painterly techniques such as monochromatic underpainting and chiaroscuro with virtual 3D programs and modeling to produce eerily anonymous, exquisite ‘portraits’, repossessing these man-made avatars for the female domain.

“What my work is most critical of is the inherent inclination toward pornographic (or at least porn-adjacent) representations of women throughout cyberspace. As our virtual selves become ever more inextricable from our physical selves, I’m interested in how the preferences of the programmers are imposed on virtual female bodies within the largely male-dominated arena of software and technology," said Emma Stern while speaking with Evan Malachosky, Cool Hunting, 2019.
