Crucifixion I, 1969, oil on canvas, 42 x 72

Lawrence Fine Art will exhibit early work by pioneering feminist artist Eunice Golden at Art Southampton, July 9-13. The Gallery will feature Crucifixion I and Crucifixion II. In these abstracted sexual landscapes, Golden mixes geology and anatomy to create works of biomorphic lyricism.

"No review of pioneering feminist artists  is complete without the inclusion of Eunice Golden," said Gallery Director Howard Shapiro.  "Others would include Judy Chicago, Miriam Schapiro, Hannah Wilke and Joyce Kozloff." 

"Each of these artists would go in her own direction over time, but they all shared an interest in confronting--sometmes literally--the dominance of the  the masculine point of view in the creation of art and in art history."

Golden's work, including the Crucifixion works, has been written on and studied extensively and has appeared in numerous academic journals and magazines.  The critic Holland Cotter wrote of her work from the early 60s and 70s that it demonstrates "how delicate and beautiful political art can be." 

Golden is known for her exploration of body painting, performance art and for her "Landscapes," explorations of the male anatomy, often showing the subject with a full erection. Wrote Cotter:    "[Golden's work conveys] a sense of the political anger, antic humor, and conceptual experimentation that characterized the tangy first wave of the women’s movement."

Golden's last museum show was as part of "Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution" in 2007 at the MOCA/Los Angeles.
