Modernism is pleased to present its first one-person exhibition of drawings by Los Angeles-based artist Laurie LIPTON.
"The art of Laurie Lipton is a potent mixture of humor and dread. In intricate drawings, Lipton seductively leads us into the drama of a fun house world where technology has gone wild. Her artistic vision is unique in contemporary art and can be easier associated to the apocalyptic cinematic vision of Ridley Scott's BLADE RUNNER (1982) and Terry Gilliam's BRAZIL (1985). The painstaking creation of Lipton's virtuoso draftsmanship is a marvel to behold."
-Robert Flynn Johnson, Curator Emeritus, Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco
Lipton's work presents unflinching commentary on the complexities of modern life, both in society at large and for individuals, including the horrors of war, alienation caused by technology, and our "post-truth" world where everything washes over us like fiction. In the Eric Minh Swenson film, "Laurie Lipton: Drawing it Out," Laurie spoke specifically about her piece, "Interface." The piece seems to comment on the trappings of the digital world. She said, "It's about being online, and how we're trapped in our little screens and our modems and everything, and this man-people ask me, oh, who is he-he's just a fleshy human being caught in circuits. And he's here in the iPhone, he's an app, he is skyping himself, he's everywhere. He's sort of caught in this tremendous techno-babble."
