Laurie Lipton

The Haunted House

Laurie Lipton’s Haunted Doll House creates a slanted, psychological realm where rooms are ghost traps filled with yearning souls, secret fears and disturbing memories.

Working exclusively in black and white (“because those are the colours of memories and phantoms”) her unsettling and macabre drawings resonate with the extraordinary atmosphere of Freud’s former home and the uncanny effect of psychoanalysis itself.

One need not be a Chamber—to be Haunted—
One need not be a House—
The Brain has Corridors— surpassing
Material Place—

Emily Dickinson

Laurie Lipton’s exquisite drawings create a slanted psychological realm where rooms are ghost traps filled with yearning souls, secret fears and disturbing memories.

Working exclusively in black and white (“because those are the colours of memories and phantoms” she says) her unsettling and macabre images resonate with the extraordinary atmosphere of Freud’s former home and the uncanny effect of psychoanalysis itself.

LAURIE LIPTON was born in New York and has been drawing since the age of four. She has lived in Holland, Belgium, Germany and France and has made her home in London since 1986. Her drawings are exhibited all over the world, and can be seen via: www.laurielipton.com
