Laurie Lipton has been largely ignored by the modern art world, but that is a huge shame. Known for her often disturbing black and white drawings, her photo quality art is the subject of the new documentary, Love Bite: Laurie Lipton and her disturbing black & white drawings, from Sundance Award-winning filmmaker James Scott.
Lipton found herself inspired by the 16th Century Flemish Masters of art and she turned to some of the most unsettling themes in our culture, such as fear, politics, sex, murder, indifference, greed and mayhem. The documentary Love Bite follows the artist as she works to create a series of nine-foot tall drawing for an L.A. gallery.
Director James Scott said: “Laurie and I are thrilled to be world premiering Love Bite at SXSW in March. It has become one of the premiere festivals on the planet, and the perfect place to reveal her extraordinary body of work spanning five decades to a new audience.”
The film will screen at the following times at the 2016 SXSW festival in Austin.
