*artwork inspired by Goya’s Sleep of Reason

Laurie Lipton’s vast and eerily memorable drawings have been widely recognized for their sublime references to life’s predicaments. Portrayed with teeth-clenching humor and consummate skill, her work is rich in imagination, artistry and social awareness. Laurie has been drawing since the age of four and has developed her own technique inspired by the 16th Century Flemish Masters: using thousands of tiny lines, like the brush strokes in an egg-tempera painting, to build-up tone and form.
