This morning I found in my email inbox a link to the web preview of pencil artist Laurie Lipton’s new exhibit entitled “Weapons of Mass Delusion”. I am stunned by this turn that her work has taken! Always subversive, Laurie has waxed political with this extremely impressive body of work.
Alas, I was supposed to travel to Los Angeles to see this show as well as follow up with a ton of friends and other artists while out there, but my pocketbook won’t allow both a trip out there and a trip to Art Basel in December. I will have to be happy with pictures on the interwebs (sigh…). I may also grab a copy of a new book of Laurie’s work that has recently been released by Beinart Publishing. Still, not the same thing.
You can see the entire show online here. If you’re in Los Angeles between May 1 and June 13th, don’t miss it! Laurie, who lives in London, will be in the area for a bit during the early few days of the exhibit doing poster signings and answering questions.
