Laurie Lipton Exhibition Information - Machine Punk - @ La Luz de Jesus Gallery

Laurie Lipton から今度開催される個展についてのメールが届いていた。
2010年11月5日から2010年11月28日にかけてロサンゼルスにある La Luz de Jesus Gallery というギャラリーで "Machine Punk" と題された個展を開催する。

ヴィンテージフォトをインスピレーションに描かれたような作品群からして、"Machine Punk" という個展のタイトルは "Steampunk" を意識して付けられたものだろう。
Laurie Lipton の作品におけるレトロフィット感覚は個人的にツボ。

Artist Reception: Friday, November 5th; 8-11 PM

“This show was inspired by the Steampunk movement that is sweeping Britain. Instead of steam, however, my devices are mostly run by electricity and madness. I was vacuuming one day and noticed the amount of plugs and cables on the floor... a veritable wasp's nest of wires and sockets connecting a hoard of gadgets and doo-dads intertwining around the house and my life. I was trapped like a fly in an electrical web. What had happened? Were these things making my life easier or more complex? I began with The Steam Punk Pocket Watch, an absurd idea of a time piece too huge & complex for anyone's pocket, and went whirling on from there. These machines are designed to hinder, control and/or give the illusion of technology. I had a tremendous amount of fun creating the images and think that this show will touch anyone who has ever become entwined, up to the eyebrows, in the Technological Age.” –Laurie Lipton
