Gina Beavers - Episode 11

Gina Beavers makes sculptural paintings that are influenced by social media imagery and often depict step-by-step instructions on how to apply make-up, images of caloric foods, or the chiseled muscles of a body builder. Gina talks about the labor that goes into producing her work, how she selects and utilizes reference materials, the many upsides of failure, teaching art in the NYC public school system, and the exchanges between applying make-up to a face versus paint to a canvas.
