A collection of new, astounding drawings by artist Laurie Lipton.
Laurie Lipton draws on canvases that are improbably large, using only pencil and charcoal. The images she renders present our modern world in scathing critique.
This new book features her latest meticulous drawings.
The artwork is part of three ongoing series entitled Techno Rococo, Post Truth, and May You Live in Interesting Times.
In these she addresses social media, unchecked consumerism, intellectual decline, environmental catastrophe, and soul-crushing isolation, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Her sprawling phantasmagorias have earned her a broad constituency of fans and collectors, from scholars and aficionados of the Flemish and German Renaissance, to savvy contemporary gallerists and collectors, to filmmakers such as Terry Gilliam and James Scott (who directed the award-winning 2016 documentary about her, Love Bite) and finally to a massive and loyal social-media following.
