Did you know?

Annie Lapin started out as an archeology major at Yale University before defecting to art. "I realized I wanted to make things rather than study them,” she stated in an interview with Meghan Dailey for artinfo.com’s Nine to Watch, 2011.

 

Los Angeles-based artist Annie Lapin draws much of her inspiration from her personal memory of historical works of art. Working from her imagination, Lapin builds up her images in layers, allowing them to develop over time. The resulting works are highly evocative impressions that capture the emotional experience of encountering some historical paintings. Her exhibition at the Weatherspoon will include recent and new works that evoke landscape and figuration yet remain open-ended and abstract. 

Annie Lapin (b. 1978, Washington, D.C., lives in Los Angeles) received her BA from Yale University and MFA from UCLA. Solo exhibitions from the last few years include the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum, Pasadena Museum of California Art, and Grand Arts, Kansas City (2008). Her work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions including Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Neuberger Museum of Art, SUNY Purchase, and Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, KS. Her works are included in numerous private and public collections including the High Museum of Art, Atlanta and Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art.. She is represented by Honor Fraser, Los Angeles.

As the Fall 2013 Falk Visiting Artist at the Weatherspoon and the Art Department at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Lapin will present a lecture and gallery talk on her work and participate in MFA graduate student critiques.

The exhibition is organized by Xandra Eden, Curator of Exhibitions. Special thanks to Assistant Professor of Art, Jennifer Meanley, and the 2013/14 Falk Visiting Artist Committee.
