About Lydia Janssen
Lydia Janssen's abstract expressionist paintings are dynamic, intimate narratives of disaster and renewal. Her achievement is not one easily obtained: it is hard-won – emotionally, physically, and intellectually. Lydia Janssen was born in Lansing, Michigan in 1976 and received a BA from Sarah Lawrence College in 1998. After graduating, she moved to New York City to pursue a professional dance career, dancing on scholarship at the Merce Cunningham Studio School, performing with modern dance troupes Pam Tanowitz Dance Company and Jordana Toback/POON Dance Company.
Janssen's dance career ended after several injuries, leading her to focus fully on her art. Janssen spent a year at the Graduate Fine Arts Department at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, before returning to New York to study at the Art Students League (2005-07) with Larry Poons and Ronnie Landfield, where in her final year won the prestigious Red Dot award for Excellence in Painting.
Janssen’s work has been exhibited at The Asia Contemporary Art Fair, Hong Kong (2016), The Singapore Contemporary Art Fair, Singapore (2016), The American Club, Singapore (2015), the Susan Eley Fine Art Gallery, New York City (2014, SOLO), the Art Silicon Valley/San Francisco Fair, California (2015), Cielo, New York City (2008); Muhlenberg College, Allentown, PA (2007); The Art Students League Gallery (2006) NACUL Center Gallery, Amherst, MA (2005, SOLO), Asian Fusion Gallery, New York City (2001); New York Academy of Art (1999); and Space Gallery, Bronxville, NY (1998), amongst others.
Many of Janssen’s paintings are in private collections in the US, UK and Asia. Janssen is represented by the Susan Eley Fine Art Gallery in New York City and REDSEA Gallery in Singapore.
