The layered abstract and figurative elements in Annie Lapin’s paintings deny resolution. Describing this purposeful lack of cohesion, the artist explains that she’s curious about the “state of waking up from a dream . . . [when] we realize that the representations and fragments of meaning that felt so solid in sleep are really just our minds’ creation . . . that moment of self-awareness when our minds create meaning.” A sense of shifting between consciousness and unconsciousness, day and night is underscored in the artist’s dominant yellow color scheme interrupted with passages of black—a wavering that’s also underscored by the painting’s title, Bright Come Bright Go.
