Gina has a BA in Studio Art and Anthropology and an MFA in Painting and Drawing. The primary source of her work is contemporary visual culture that has been rapidly transformed by the omnipresence of the social media, which she addresses in her thickly layered relief-like acrylic compositions. Working before with references taken from the original pop movement of the 1950s and 60s, Beavers evolved to paint the ‘current pop’, starting to search on social media posts for image templates to her extravagant canvases. Beavers’ anthropological interest in society translates in paintings that explore the banality of internet: makeup tutorials, the so called food-porn pictures, body builder selfies, etc. In tune with the eccentricity of her artistic process, Gina Beavers maximizes the visual potential of her medium, taking tridimensionality to its higher possible level and bringing painting closer to sculpture.
In 2019 Beavers had a solo exhibition at MoMA PS1 The Life I Deserve, which is accompanied by the artist’s first monograph. Her work has been presented in many institutional and gallery exhibitions worldwide.
