Valérie Belin is interested in the distinction between artificiality and reality, questioning the construction of ideals. By abstracting the human form, the artist examines notions of gender and mainstream beauty. A recent series, Painted Ladies, is on display at Edwynn Houk Gallery, New York.
From 2 March. Find out more: www.houkgallery.com.
