Ellen Lanyon: The Persistence of Invention

@ DePaul Art Museum

935 W. Fullerton Chicago, IL 60614

Opening Friday, September 14th, from 5PM - 7:30PM

On view through Sunday, November 18th

In her distinguished career the painter Ellen Lanyon has explored a range of visual imagery, from the exotic manifestations of the natural world to material culture: objects such as antique tools or kitchen equipment, somehow bridging the distance between categories through evocative titles and scrupulous examination of form. On a broader level, her work reflects an experimental approach to painting and pleasure in its ability to re-present the world. This exhibition brings paintings from 1969 to the present together with a selection of the found objects that fill her studio.
