Annie Lapin (b. 1978) deconstructs the materials of painting to explore how the physical qualities of the medium inherit their abilities to function as language, and to convey time and memory. Invested in the relationship between process and form, Lapin has produces paintings that function as both repositories of the various production processes of the studio and delicate compositions.
Annie Lapin was born in Washington D.C. and lives and works in Los Angeles. She received her BA from Yale University in 2001 and her MFA from UCLA in 2007. Lapin has had solo-exhibitions at Honor Fraser Gallery, Los Angeles; Annarumma Gallery, Naples; The Pasadena Museum of California Art, Pasadena; and Grand Arts, Kansas City. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, Kansas; The Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, New York; and Galerie Lelong, New York.
