The Los Angeles–based painter and sculptor Erica Mahinay is now represented in New York by Lyles & King, where she had a show that closed last month.
Mahinay is perhaps best known for spare, subtle paintings that sometimes involve different kinds of dyed or bleached fabrics—nylon, raw oil, canvas—that she stitches together. With their elegantly unfinished feel, they recall Sergej Jensen or Gedi Sibony cut through with suggestions of the body, in the form of sutured skin, scars, or orifices.
The artist’s next major show will be a pop-up solo affair in Los Angeles in January with T293, which represents her in Rome. She has also had one-person outings at Ibid Gallery in L.A. and Fused Space in San Francisco. Her work has made appearances in group shows at Nathalie Karg in New York, Harmony Murphy Gallery in L.A., and Anat Ebgi in L.A.
