Gina Osterloh's work simultaneously embodies and resists the history of portraiture. Her photography, film, video, and performance based practice encompasses her own body traversing, tracing, and puncturing photographic space – to interrogate the boundaries of a body, notions of identity, and zones of desire. Recurring symbolic themes such as the void, camouflage and the grid, in addition to a heightened awareness of color and pattern, are present throughout Osterloh's oeuvre.

Solo exhibitions include “Anonymous Front” at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco; Gina Osterloh at Higher Pictures; Slice, Strike, Make an X, Prick! At François Ghebaly Gallery; Nothing to See Here There Never Was at Silverlens Gallery; Group exhibitions include Energy Charge: Connecting to Ana Mendieta at Arizona State University Museum, This is Not America: Resistance, Protest and Poetics at Arizona State University Museum, Demolition Women at The Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University.
