Lanny DeVuono: Outer Space
January 22, 2017 - January 27, 2017
Outer Space is a series of paintings and drawings that imagine extraterrestrial exploration as promised by groups from Virgin Galactic to XCOR Aerospace to Mars One. These paintings, drawings and studies are utterly imaginary. Akin to the earlier fanciful images of the Americas made by 16th c. Europeans, they are also loaded with localized desires, concerns and projections.

Lanny DeVuono uses landscape imagery as a metaphor to examine both the physical environment in which we live, as well as the social and psychological environments of our expectations. In this series, Outer Space, she is interested in the current privatization of space research, historical parallels with past explorations as well as the fast changing environments of the earth.
She is an associate professor at the University of Colorado Denver and has taught at Eastern Washington University, New York University, William Paterson University, Rangsit University in Thailand and Trivandrum College of Fine Art in India.
DeVuono has received numerous awards for her work, including a Fulbright Fellowship, a Washington State Artist Trust Fellowship, a GAP Grant, and artist residency awards at Yaddo, Centrum, Jentel and RedLine among others. Her work is in collections such as NW Museum of Art & Culture, Mills College Art Museum, Washington State Medical Center, Swedish Hospital, Jundt Art Museum, the Kent Justice Center, Great Western Bank, as well as private collections.
She also writes on contemporary art under the name Frances DeVuono. Past publications include: Art News, New Art Examiner, Arts and Artweek, among others.
