The Extraordinary Drawings of Laurie Lipton
Laurie Lipton's vast and eerily memorable drawings have been widely recognised for their sublime references to life’s predicaments. Portrayed with a teeth-clenching humour and consummate skill,her work is rich in imagination, artistry and social awareness. Laurie has been drawing since the age of four and has developed her own technique inspired by the 16th Century Flemish Masters: using
thousands of tiny lines, like the brush strokes in an egg-tempera painting, to build-up tone and form. At long last a comprehensive book on Lipton’s work has been published. The subject of her art – fear, politics, sexuality, murder, mayhem, greed, indifference – are timelessly classic yet relentlessly up to date. This publication is not only for art lovers, but for anyone who has ever seen the mask slip off “reality”.
