Press Release

For Art Nova 2011, Gavlak presents the work of Lisa Anne Auerbach, Orly Genger, and Alexis Marguerite Teplin for the overlapping formal and conceptual concerns they share. Each artist offers her own unique perspective in terms of materials, notions of female desire and perspective, sexuality and gender, and the history of art from the Rococo through Pop Art and Minimalism. Auerbach, Genger, and Teplin each play with the cultural and political significance of the materials they use, such as found photography, wool, rope and existing vintage fashion items.

Drawing upon commonly recognized crafts, such as sewing, knitting and crocheting, which are frequently dismissed as “woman’s work,” these artists re-contextualize them to produce an object, sprawling installation or painting that guides the viewer through their very specific perspectives on art and culture.
