Annie Lapin

January 11, 2013 by 5790projects in Art, Emergent with 0 Comments

Like a study in phenomenology, Annie Lapin’s work details the impressionistic nature of recollection. Ghostly figuration, illusory composition, and the gentle destruction of an ordinary landscape tell a tale colored by emotional muscle memory, and evoke the enrapturing tenor of a spiritual episode. Through her feathery abstraction, she portrays the unencumbered cognitive process of summoning a bygone moment. At times, her paintings and sculpture kindle warm romanticism, while others elicit tense hostility – a dexterity that illustrates Lapin’s concern with the trustworthiness of human perception. Her compositions echo the posturing of familial, amorous, religious, and historical constitutions – relying on the viewer’s subjective intuition to activate their visceral prowess. Sublime to some and eerie to others, her distorted mise en scenes characterize the dramatic struggle between logic and emotion, and unravel the influence of latent association on individual psychology. www.honorfraser.com
