— Danica Lundy

b. 1991, Salt Spring Island, Canada
Lives and works in Brooklyn.

Danica Lundy’s paintings are gut driven and mind made to evoke vivid, slow-release visual experiences. Autobiographical content shares space with collective and imagined histories. They have settled in around adolescence, where sentience is heightened to a fever pitch and many versions of selves are tried on and discarded. Thinking about the dull edge between woman- and girl-hood provides access to a familiar paradigm of untidy transformation— of discovery, danger, and abrupt loss of innocence. Reoccupying it helps inform pictorial decisions, so that a painting can become a poem, a nightmare, a construction site; a lived-in arena for testing out the limits of one’s own power.

Lundy received her MFA in 2017 from the New York Academy of Art and her BFA in 2013 from Mount Allison University. She was a recipient of the Leipzig International Art Programme Residency, the Chubb Post-Graduate Fellowship, and is a three-time Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grantee. Her work has been exhibited in shows and fairs internationally; her most recent solo exhibitions include “Cherry Log Road” at Super Dakota in Brussels, “bleach cologne” at GNYP Gallery in Berlin and a solo booth at Sunday Fair in London. Her work has been acquired by private collections around the world, as well as the ICA Miami, the Sydney Modern, The Schorr Family Collection, The Green Family Foundation, and the Collezione Maramotti. Forthcoming solo projects in 2022 include Magenta Plains in NYC and White Cube in London. Lundy is represented by Super Dakota.
