There is a story behind all pictures. I paint a path to freedom. Even when I was behind bars I was dedicated to some how getting paint and a piece of canvas. I would have to trade food or whatever I had that was valuable so I could leave for a little while and enter my own world. Painting Is a wonderful thing, having any sort of creative hobbies on the go is a great tool for the soul, your soul can bend but not break.
Freedom has a price and I have witnessed this in war and in court.
It's a funny weird world so I decided
to paint my own ✌️
Under the tree, drypoint, 2008.
This etching is part of a series called "Women of the wood" which I have exhibited years ago @cuebgallery in London. I miss spending time experimenting with my printing press!
In the new year I will start using It again and getting lost between papers and inks! I have printed five copies of each plate so I have a couple of images left from that series. Check out my @etsy art store to take a look. 🌺
Gina Beavers is an artist who lives and works in New York City. Beavers questions the relationship between women and makeup, as well as the nature of our interactions with digital expressions of beauty. She creates paintings and installations from photos culled from the Internet and social media and renders them in high Acrylic relief. Her paintings of these subjects are hardly “pretty,” emphasising their clunky physicality, and stripping the gloss from these photos. Series include paintings based on the creative realms of body painting, social media user's photos of their meals, make-up tutorials, memes, and bodybuilder selfies.
