"Sleep of Reason" : one woman show, works inspired by Goya

Works inspired by Francisco de Goya.
Breathtaking detail is one of the most astonishing characteristics of Laurie Lipton’s work. Her large format pencil drawings are created in the same manner the old masters used to paint: hundreds, if not thousands of little lines create areas of tone – a tedious way of drawing, yet one that allows her to achieve an amount of detail and luminosity that is almost unparalleled.

Lipton’s work brings out the strange and grotesque in everyday life. Aiming for a psychological Realism, her works for “The Sleep of Reason” were deeply inspired by Spanish artist Francisco de Goya ( 1746 - 1828 ). Goya, who has portrayed the horrors of his time quite realistically in his series of etchings titled “The Disasters of War,” yet has also created fantastic and mythological paintings such as “Colossus,” has been a tremendous influence on Lipton’s work.
