About the Artist

Elaine Reichek b.1943

American conceptual artist Elaine Reichek studied under Ad Reinhardt at Yale University. Her work deals with issues of national and cultural identity, informed by feminist theory and practice. Employing traditionally female practices such as knitting and embroidery, Reichek recreates familiar historical images and political icons in order to challenge notions of knowledge and culture. Reichek has exhibited extensively in the United States and Europe, including a solo exhibition at IMMA in 1993.
