Art By Virginia Overton

From the feminine approach of Eva Hesse, and the use of the cold light of Dan Flavin, the artist Virginia Overton builds her own poetic art, made of mixed media, masculine materials and a cascade of wavy blond hair. The 39-year old artist was born in Tennessee and grew up in a farm, which is why, she asserts, her works feature rough materials, such as sheetrock mud and wood beams. The neon works are covered with a special plastic paper where a copy of her hair creates a magic pattern. Overton lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, and she is featured this month in Art Production Fund’s Pop-up in Montauk.
