Gina Beavers (b. 1974; Athens, Greece) spends hours scouring Instagram, YouTube, blogs, and other online sources in search of images that inspire, compel, repulse, and amuse her. Her paintings are often inspired by found memes and food porn, which blend ideas of consumption with sexual desire. In "Duct-tape Banana Nails", Beavers references the Maurizio Cattelan banana from Art Basel, transforming it into extravagent nail art. To create her intensely tactile works, Beavers builds up acrylic paint so densely on the canvas that she is able to sculpt it with a knife.
