Drawing inspiration from political propaganda, Lawrence Gipe constructs challenging, dense works that encourage the viewer to analyze and to rethink familiar images. Creating oil paintings, drawings, and video installations, he re-appropriates censored pictures and photographs to explore notions of ideology and power. As Gipe explains, "My work is inspired by the visual culture that gets stimulated by fascism and totalitarian governments and propaganda."
Gipe has been awarded two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, one in 1989 for painting and another in 1995 for works on paper. His work has been exhibited in numerous public and private collections, including the Brooklyn Museum, the Tucson Museum of Art, and the Cincinnati Art Museum. Read Less
