FEATURED ARTIST

ANNIE LAPIN

Annie Lapin

Strange Little Beast is a solo exhibition of new works by Los Angeles-based painter Annie Lapin at Shulamit Nazarian. Lapin’s paintings call attention to the human desire for meaning making–our effort to create order out of chaos. In Strange Little Beast, Lapin’s paintings use her interest in art history, perception, and the materiality of painting itself to examine the role of digital technology and narrative building in our contemporary moment. Annie Lapin (b. 1978, Washington, D.C.) received her MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2007, her Post-Baccalaureate Certificate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2004, and her BA from Yale University in 2001. Annie Lapin lives and works in Los Angeles. Recent solo exhibitions include Miles McEnery Gallery, New York; Honor Fraser, Los Angeles; Josh Lilley, London; Annarumma Gallery, Naples; Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC; Yautepec Gallery, Mexico City; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Santa Barbara. Annie Lapin’s work is included in the permanent collections of the High Museum of Art, Atlanta; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Orange County Museum of Art, Rubell Family Collection, Santa Barbara Museum, Weatherspoon Art Museum, and the Zabludowicz Collection. The show runs until December 21.
