London-based artist, Laurie Lipton, is getting set to open her show this weekend at the Grand Central Art Center at Cal State Fullerton. This exhibition will include new and old works (some from her Liverpool show in November), featuring some of her signature incredibly detailed “drawings” that have to be seen to be believed. “Weapons of Mass Delusion”, opening May 1st, not only showcases Lipton’s rendering skills but also her biting social commentary including familiar scenarios such as impotent witnesses to a crime (seen above), the influences of the media, and corrupt financial institutions.
