Lisa Lapinski: The Fret and its Variants (MOCA Focus Series)
By Bennett Simpson
This catalogue accompanied the exhibition Lisa Lapinski: The Fret and its Variants, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, June – August 2008.
Lisa Lapinski’s (b. 1967, Palo Alto, California) installations merge aesthetic vocabularies—Shaker, modern, and Saharan—with a playfully philosophical sensibility. Utilizing wood, found objects, and wallpaper, among other materials, her work adds questions of syntax, pattern, association, and language to sculpture’s traditional spatial and volumetric concerns. Lapinski received her master of fine arts degree from Art Center College of Design in 2000 and has shown in galleries in Los Angeles and Berlin. In 2006, her work was included in the 2006 Whitney Biennial.
