Laurie’s Lipton’s gorgeously eerie, incredibly detailed pencil drawings are influenced by Diana Arbus, Goya, and Rembrandt. Originally aiming to create work akin to that of the Dutch Masters, Lipton works only in evocative black and white as it is “the color of ancient photographs and old TV shows… of ghosts, longing, time passing, memory, and madness.” See Lipton present and sign her new Last Gasp book, “The Drawings of Laurie Lipton,” at La Luz de Jesus. This gorgeous volume, with a black faux-leather cover trimmed in silver foil, features over 170 images, including 70 black and white plates. Following the signing, Begovich Gallery Director Mike McGee, whose essays appear in such illustrious art publications as “Juxtapoz,” will lead a discussion with the artist about her work, life, and creative process.
