Biography from Heather James Fine Art:
Currently living and working in Los Angeles, Annie Lapin received her graduate degree in 2007 from the University of California, Los Angeles in the Graduate School of Fine Arts.  She has participated in many solo and group exhibitions and has been selected to be a part of three residency programs throughout the United States and Ireland.  She has been referenced in LA Weekly, The Los Angeles Times, Art Ltd., The Kansas City Star and The Huffington Post, lauding her intriguing and incredibly complicated works.

Her paintings are intended to distort a presupposed, picturesque image of reality while willfully drawing the viewer into a twisted fantasy world of creative imagination. Lapin's paintings are solely derived from her head, as she relies on her own creative energy to direct the painting process.  For some viewers, her paintings exude both confidence and uncertainty, which helps add to the energetic feel and vague clarity possessed in her work.  She also intends that her works can be easily read but take time and patience to intuitively grasp the feelings buried within her elusive concrete forms.  Her goal is to have a tactile energy of ideas and forms remaining, worked out on the surface through her artistic process involving scraping, rubbing and smearing of the paint.

Annie Lapin's painting, 'Perceived Marriage Tripartite Leave, depicts free formed figures that she did hoping to gracefully articulate ambiguity while stationed in an atmosphere engrossed in a tense separation between chaos and resolution.

The figures are generalized and primitive in design, as her style is often likened to the styles of the Bay Area Figurative painting of the 1950's and Neo-Expressionism of the 1980's.  Her purpose is to create a sense of emotional urgency and chromatic intensity by highlighting her defining sweeping brushstrokes with purple, brown and create a scene that is raw and uneasy but is infused with a strong balance to ease the tension between the fear and fearlessness felt by the viewer.
