Laurie Lipton: Drawing

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

Laurie Lipton admits that “I was the best drawer in kindergarten.” And though her new book is modestly called Drawing, it summons a bit more than getting a gold star sticker from the teacher. In typical droll humor, the monograph is divided into three series, Post Truth, Techno Rococo, and May You Live in Interesting Times, understatements about a mass-media world saturated with information, unprecedented communication, and stagnating anxiety. Lipton, a fan of Diane Arbus, states the facts, wrinkles and all, in black and white, sketched in pencil and charcoal in her painstaking, signature cross-hatch method.
