Have you made it to @gina_beavers
exhibition “The Life I Deserve” at @momaps1
yet? The exhibition displays some of her stunning dense paintings that protrude from the canvas. One of my favorites in the show is “Painted Lips,” 2019, which depicts lips being painted. Much of her content is pulled from social media and beauty tutorials. The individual frames of the piece look like frieze frames from beauty tutorials on @youtube.
I am obsessed with the details of this piece because it is so hard to believe that there isn’t any styrofoam to add volume, which she does use in some of her paintings but she did not use any in this one.
