Betty Tompkins "Sex Works / WOMEN Words, Phrases, and Stories" @ Gavlak Gallery in Los Angeles

Gavlak Los Angeles presents Sex Works / WOMEN Words, Phrases, and Stories, Betty Tompkins’ second solo exhibition with the gallery and her first in Los Angeles. This exhibition includes Betty’s recent series of WOMEN Words paintings, along with a survey of her early works on paper, and large-scale Cunt, Fuck, and Pussy paintings. Sex Works / WOMEN Words, Phrases, and Stories put pieces from the beginning of Tompkins’ career in conversation with her most recent paintings, showcasing the artist’s trajectory from subtly political works to more overt statements. The exhibition will be on view until September 3, 2016 at Gavlak Los Angeles. photographs by Sara Clarken
