About the Work
Drawing source material from Google and Instagram, The New York Times states that Gina Beavers takes “photo appropriation into new extremes of dimensionality.” Beavers “exaggerates and satirizes both the act of painting and the fetishization of food” by using thick acrylic medium to sculpt, carve and paint her relief works to life. Exhibition A is pleased to present Cake, a print edition based on a pastel drawing of one of Beavers’ most beloved works to date.
Gina Beavers has mounted solo exhibitions at MoMA PS1 (Long Island City), Marianne Boesky Gallery (New York), Cheim and Read (New York), Gavin Brown's Enterprise (New York), Michael Benevento Gallery (Los Angeles), Clifton Benevento Gallery (New York), Retrospective Gallery (Hudson, NY) and James Fuentes (New York). Beavers’ work has been featured in group exhibitions at CANADA (New York), Zach Feuer (New York), The Journal Gallery (Brooklyn), Nicelle Beauchene (New York), Night Gallery (Los Angeles), Cooper Cole (Toronto), Fredric Snitzer Gallery (Miami, FL), and Halsey McKay (East Hampton). Beavers’ work has been reviewed and published in Artforum, The New York Times, Modern Painters and The New Yorker. She holds a BA from the University of Virginia and an MFA from School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Born in Athens, Greece, Gina Beavers lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
Authentication & Resale
This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by the artist.
Be sure to keep your Certificate of Authenticity (COA) in a safe place. We are unable to replace or reissue COAs.
Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.
All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.
