Annie Lapin says of her recent work, "In almost every case, familiar forms in painting
are relics of a temporally fleeting social context we cannot access anymore. These
forms become shells, that we know and can recognize, but which take on a
completely different function as their original content is lost for the contemporary
viewer." Lapin lives and works in Los Angeles, received her BA from Yale University
(2001) and her MFA from UCLA (2007). Lapin has had solo-exhibitions at Honor
Fraser Gallery, Los Angeles; Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum, Santa
Barbara; The Pasadena Museum of California Art, Pasadena; and Grand Arts, Kansas
City. Upcoming solo exhibitions include Josh Lilley Gallery in London and the
Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina which has just named her
the 2013 Falk Visiting Artist.
