When artist Rachel Lachowicz started working with cosmetics, she mainly used the material to remake work by iconic men — her cube shaped¬†Sarah¬†(1993) was a replica of sculptor Richard Serra’s One Ton Prop. Since then, she’s become something of an expert on the material properties of cosmetics and her new show at Shoshana Wayne Gallery, her sixth there, includes a few lipstick wax sculptures, geometric plexi shapes filled with eye shadow powder and meticulous, wall-hanging text pieces made entirely of eye-shadow tins (“Context is Queen,” says one).
