Gabriel Mark Lipper currently lives and works in Ashland Oregon. His current paintings explore themes of energy, wealth, and ambition. His paintings ask open-ended questions about the viewers’ relationship to the painted narratives.
An emphasis on technique and application of oil paint serve as a classical anchor for his otherwise often disconnected contemporary subjects. This dualism is borne out of a fixation with craftsmanship and an exploratory fascination with the zealous excesses of the new millennium.
Drawing on influences as diverse as Tolstoy, Fellini, and Eazy-E, Lipper continues his focused inquiry into our sociocultural evolution with his latest body of work: American Dream.
