Laurie Lipton’s work is an assault on conventional sensibilities. Wonderfully crafted, this Brueghelish look at the modern world will no doubt enlist a following from the comic book generation. But to an older generation her work is an attack. As if we were thrown back into the industrial revolution and forced to relive the days of plaque, the Ripper, and the Light Brigade.(Her personal sight is very slow to respond so you may have more luck goggling her name.)

From Robert Mars’ statement:

“My paintings employ layers of color, subtly collaged printed matter from the 1950’s and 1960’s, and stark, black imagery. Remote, indistinct landscapes capture the once poetic, and now nearly lost highway strips of the American past. Formerly the promise of hope and prosperity; these icons are now a sign of desperation and ruin.”

There is in Mars work a sense of bleakness. Peeled paint. Abandoned gas stations. Restaurants abandoned. A landscape where the language has somehow been lost. Some of the collages almost look like road maps. Like aerial shots of the landscape. With the roads gone.
