BIO

b. 1955 Lives and works in Wisconsin. In her magnificently detailed and inventive paintings, Gina Litherland extends a tradition of Midwest surrealism and magic realism that stretches back to the ’30s and ’40s and the work of Gertrude Abercrombie, Sylvia Fein, Julia Thecla and John Wilde. Born in Gary, Indiana, Litherland has been active in the visual arts since the mid 1970s, exploring photography, performance, and painting. From 1979 to 1982 she participated in weekly experimental multimedia performances at the Emergency Theatre in Chicago. Long a resident of Chicago, she studied painting at the School of the Art Institute, and her paintings, drawings, and articles have been published worldwide in journals and periodicals associated with the international surrealist movement. Her essay on the connections between creative activity and the natural world, “Imagination & Wilderness,” appeared in Surrealist Women: An International Anthology, published by University of Texas Press. Litherland’s recent work was the subject of a museum exhibition at the James Watrous Gallery of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts, and Letters in Madison in 2006.
