In Laurie Lipton’s recent works, featured here, the artist take us into a world that feels overwhelmed with technology. It is a place where wires, screens, emojis and other aspects of our modern day communication devices define this world’s movement and style. She calls it a “Techno Rococo” of sorts, the title and basis of her latest series of drawings which debuted over the weekend at Ace Gallery in Los Angeles.
The dark and insanely detailed drawings of Laurie Lipton mix elements from different eras of art and time, including her own surreal version of reality. When asked her to describe her meticulous, cross-hatching in one word, she answered, “sick” (with a grin). She has exhibited and lived all over the world from Holland, Germany, France, and recently London, where she spent time with the likes of Terry Gilliam, one of her favorite creatives. She will exhibit the art discussed here at Ace Gallery in Los Angeles next year.
