Caroline Coon, inspired by feminism and the politics of sexual liberation, makes unique paintings that contest binary notions of gender and oppressive patriarchal values. Her works cover a variety of subjects including sex workers, beachgoers, football players, still lives and urban landscapes. All are united by her unwavering rebellion against the status quo.
