This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Living in Los Angeles and born in San Francisco, Rachel Lachowicz is on the faculty of Claremont Graduate University.  She "is known for turning her witty eye on the masculine-centric world of Modernism and for making radical incursions into the canon of art history by reconfiguring famous works. She falls under a multitude of headings: feminist, appropriationist, post minimalist, conceptual artist, and conceptual sculptor.

The term “Lipstick Feminist,” grew out of an 80’s-90’s philosophy but more specifically the art world came to use that term to refer to the work of Rachel Lachowicz, and less than a handful of others. She explores the relationship of identity and the politics of mark making, predominately through the use of cosmetics. Lachowicz makes both discreet objects and large-scale installations. Her work is visually lush, at times sexually provocative, with a deliberate repurposing of meaning."

Her education includes a B.A. Degree from the California Institute of Arts. She is a Santa Monica Arts Commissioner and serves on the Santa Monica Public Art Committee.  She has taught for 15 years on the graduate level.

These Notes from AskART represent the beginning of a possible future biography for this artist. Please click here if you wish to help in its development:
The following is from Paul Carpenter:

Rachel Lachowicz went to Cal Arts.  She made her mark with a feminist critique of Yves Klien's performance of body prints of women. Instead of blue paint, she used lipstick and instead of women she used men. Her work tends to be performance-conceptually oriented.
