DePaul Art Museum announces Ellen Lanyon. The Persistence of Invention

DePaul Art Museum announces Ellen Lanyon. The Persistence of Invention, an exhibition on view September 14 – November 18 / 2012.


Ellen Lanyon, Homage a Poyet; Dominoes and Dragons 1999/2007, acrylic on canvas, 44 x 52 inches

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. www.museums.depaul.edu
