Greer Lankton

American, 1958 - 1996
Biography
Greer Lankton was an American artist whose work is autobiographical and revealing of her obsessions. Lankton's dolls and environments possess a disarming mix of innocence and decadence, hope and pathos. She said her work was "all about me," reflecting her life as an artist, as a transgender person and a drug addict. But beyond this, and as an outsider, Lankton eloquently explored and questioned the norms of gender and sexuality, as well as the powerful imagery of popular culture and consumerism.
