Jennifer Poon's watercolor ladies — lovely, tragic creatures, like the one shown here, donning a scandalously ill-fitting bikini and hissing smoke from her mouth — would fit well on the pages of Vogue. That is, if Anna Wintour was to move on and cartoonist Aline Kominsky-Crumb took the reins. Poon’s show of new works is at Claire Oliver Gallery in Chelsea through April 14. —Emma Pearse
