Shoshana Wayne Gallery Rachel Lachowicz

Lachowicz’s newest body of work utilizes materiality as a lens to examine our reality through color and geometric abstraction. Materiality has been a through line in Lachowicz’s work. Tthrough her use of cosmetics the artist attempts to break down strict and outdated binaries of gender. Lachowicz has shifted her focus to geometric abstraction. In doing so, its further spotlights systems and laws which define our existence.

The Gravity of Color

Many of the works in this exhibition were born from the artist’s interest in quantum physics and cosmology, and showcase a desire to illustrate the intangible. Works like Time (2024), Deep Weave (2024), and Network (2024) are abstract representations of longitudinal waves, multiverse theory, and radio frequency radiation. Depicting these monumental ideas through her signature medium of pressed-eyeshadow allows Lachowicz to examine them at a granular level, shifting the scale to something relatable. Etymology further strengthens a connection between cosmetics and cosmology, as both words share the Greek root of cosmos/kosmos. This shared root roughly translates to ‘order’ or ‘proper arrangement’ and by representing the forces which order our universe through makeup, Lachowicz illuminates and strengthens these connections.
