Edward Givis

Edward Givis’ work explores sexuality and art history, as well as his upbringing in rural Upstate New York. For subjects, the artist chooses tools from hardware stores that suit his ideal proportions and renders these objects with a religious attention to detail usually associated with marketing. Drawing from his work in advertising, Givis creates direct works that focus on physical form and personal narrative—while simultaneously capturing a kind of subjective beauty and mortality.
