I am not going to add too much commentary on these pieces as I believe it would take away from their impact. Laurie Lipton is an American artist, who was born in New York, although she has since relocated to London. Most of her work consists of charcoal and pencil on paper. She is a true master of the art of shading. I absolutely love her macabre style and dark subject matter as well as the way she tells a unique story in each image.
