Shulamit Nazarian is pleased to present Contours of the Vast, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Los Angeles-based artist Annie Lapin. This will be the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, on view from November 12 through December 17. This presentation will span both exhibition spaces at the gallery.
Annie Lapin is known for her paintings that visually combine art-historical tropes of landscape, figuration, and abstraction. By merging these prominent genres, Lapin is able to distort representations of history, compress geological space and time within a single picture plane, and explore how both our bodies and minds shape how we perceive the world around us. Contours of the Vast unites these ideas through a series of paintings on canvas that range from the intimate to the monumental, alongside a new series of framed paintings on Yupo paper.
