Jackie Lipton
Bio and Statement 
 
Eileen Myles, well-known and much-admired poet and art
critic, wrote an essay, "Lavish Interiors" about Jackie Lipton's paintings, published in Provincetown Arts magazine. In the interview she conducted with Jackie at Ms. Lipton’s studio, when asked about creative process Jackie discussed her lifelong need to paint and be working actively in the studio, where she equates painting with survival. Describing her motivation for painting, Jackie is quoted as stating her intention in doing art and painting as an idea is to touch you and shake you.

In 'Out on a Limb', a show of recent paintings at AMP Gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts, Jackie Lipton shows how the experience of painting itself becomes alive.

Jackie Lipton has an active career spanning decades. She has received grants and awards for painting and drawing, from the Pollock Krasner Foundation, granted three times, and from the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation's special funds. She received a NYFA boot camp award, and earlier a NYFAI collaborative arts award, among others. Her fellowships and residencies include the MacDowell Colony, the Cummmington Community of the Arts (no longer there), and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts; in Iceland, she was awarded a grant at a small residency program from the Gallery Boreas, of a studio and apartment in Reykjavik.

Selected exhibitions include ARC at the Whitney Museum, the Art Resources Center of the Whitney Museum’s Gallery, the Aldrich Museum, Condeso/Lawler Gallery, WARM Gallery, the Art Resources Transfer Gallery, Gale/Martin Gallery, Gallery Boreas, Corinne Robbins Gallery, Life on Mars Gallery and Westbeth Gallery in NYC; the Schoolhouse Gallery and AMP Gallery in Provincetown, Mass. She is currently showing work at AMP Gallery where a show of new paintings and prints is planned for May/June 2017 and at Anthony Philip Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC. Lipton works in her studio in Chelsea and lives in Westbeth Artist Housing in NYC with her life partner, J.
