Alex Gingrow
Every Eyelash, Every 11:22, Every Shooting Star

2018

$5,000

About

Alex Gingrow creates text-based paintings and drawings that are at turns witty, sardonic, poetic, self-deprecating and revealing. The delivery systems for the narratives are easily recognizable objects such as gallery provenance stickers or a daily desk calendar. Gingrow reappropriates these objects with her own writing and carefully render the text so that from a distance, the work appears to be that of a mechanical reproduction. On closer inspection, it is evident that the surface of the work is carefully and delicately modeled with repetitive mark-making: a symbolic meditative homage to the history of painting. Like the goal of all good literature, Alex Gingrow strives to make nuanced work that is, at its core, an examination of the oddities and intricacies of the human condition.
