Larissa Lockshin CV

Larissa Lockshin is a New York-based abstract artist known for her whimsical, champagne-hued satin paintings. Inspired by Edgar Degas’ ballerina dancers, Lockshin’s characteristic tulip and heart shapes become like tulle skirts spinning across the stage - a musical landscape.⁣ Seeking to also challenge the existing associations, categorizations, definitions, and language surrounding art, Lockshin emphasizes objecthood over image content. Employing printer ink, acrylic, oil sticks, enamel, and chalk, Lockshin creates objects that reach out to the viewer and exist in the liminal space between painting and sculpture. The question of how art can maintain its value as a physical object when most artworks are viewed online impelled Lockshin to create artworks that defy the confines of digital reproduction, countering notions of what painting is through loosely impressionistic, largely unrecognizable forms.
