Laurie Lipton Print Release and Book Signing
Laurie Lipton Print Release & Book Signing Saturday December 14th, 5-7pm Don't miss this rare Bay Area visit by master artist Laurie Lipton. It's been years since Laurie Lipton visited San Francisco. She will be here at the gallery for a special event to celebrate the release of her new print combined with a fabulous Last Gasp book signing.
The Drawings of Laurie Lipton is a comprehensive survey of Lipton’s fantastical, meticulously-detailed pencil drawings. Featuring more than 70 works, this is the most conclusive and ambitious publication about the artist to date, and it is brought to you by the publisher Last Gasp.
Bone China Giclée Print on Archival Paper 22" x 22" Edition of 50 Signed by Laurie Lipton 2013
This limited edition is based on the original 2009 charcoal & pencil on paper. Release Date: December 14, 2013 Here is a picture of an elderly lady surrounded by chattering skeletons. Everything is decaying, except for the Twinkies and cupcakes on the table (which are made up of non biodegradable synthetic chemicals). This is not a morbid English tea fantasy, but an encroaching reality. I'm getting older--& the number of dead I know is growing exponentially. - Laurie Lipton
