The New York-based painter culls Instagram and the internet for her images, with a particular fondness for nail art and food porn. The artist anticipates that her works will be reabsorbed by the social media platforms from which they were taken. Tenzing Barshee and Camila McHugh spoke to Gina Beavers about trying too hard, making your own memes, and the realness of the world.
