Lachrymose Lace – Lipton
Born in New York and very well traveled, Laurie Lipton currently lives in Los Angeles. She creates wonderfully detailed and super tight renderings of haunted Victorian scenarios. Working mostly in pencil, charcoal and etchings. Laurie’s surreal worlds contain narratives of ghostlands – staid skeletons, vintage housewives and Big Brother – all hold court in a tapestry of gothic science fiction. Modern postcards anointed with mischievous glee, political stabs, fancy lace perfection and witty twists.
Laurie’s upcoming solo show (above) opens Oct. 1st. at Last Rites in New York City, on view thru Oct. 23rd, 2011.
