about this work

Conceited Girl Wants To Show She Has A Seat (After Goya) (2009) draws on motifs in the recent work of Frances Stark, including collaged hands that enter the picture plane, and an image of a woman 'wearing' a chair (based on a Goya etching that satirises feminine display).

about Frances Stark

°1967, Newport Beach (US) - lives and works in Los Angeles (US)

Frances Stark often draws on book culture within her work, and seems especially interested in the self-reflexivity that is a feature of modernist writing. Such self-reflexivity is echoed in the visual strategies that her work employs, which include repetition, fragmentation, appropriation and collage. However, Stark's quotations from literary culture are more playful than didactic. They are also part of a wider interrogation of the creative act, and of authorial uncertainty, that has a pronounced autobiographical aspect for the artist, who often appears in her own work.

Frances Stark has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Art Institute of Chicago; MoMA PS1, New York; and Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven. Her work has been shown in several group exhibitions at venues such as MOCA, Los Angeles; ICA, Philadelphia; Tate Modern, London; and Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis. She also participated at the Whitney Biennial in 2008.
