Ghost in the Garden
February 16 - March 17, 2019
Opening Reception Saturday, February 16, 5-7 PM
For Ghost in the Garden, Meg deconstructs and reconstructs painterly behavior, and reconfigures the grammar of painting. In Lipke's universe, the image and act are not confined to the flat surface of the canvas, but move into unexpected shapes and dimensions. Lipke's work can be framed as an exuberant and confident assault on the historical conceits of painting.
Meg Lipke was born in 1969 in Portland, Oregon and was raised in Burlington, Vermont and Cheshire, England. She received her MFA from Cornell University and has taught at The University of Northern Iowa, Cornell University, and Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and has been reviewed in Art in America, the Village Voice, the New York Times. She splits her time between the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn and Hudson, New York.
