Description

Lyceum Lecture by Professor Laura Osterweis, Associate Professor, Department of Communication Arts, FSU.

With a series of artwork created using giveaway lipsticks from cosmetic companies, Laura Osterweis explores concepts of beauty and graphic expression with an economical use of materials. Laura recalls her grandmother’s gentle urging, "Can't you put on a little lipstick?"
This repeated suggestion, combined with her giveaway lipstick collection, started her thinking about how wearing lipstick contributes to our concepts of beauty. She followed her grandmother's advice and put a little lipstick on watercolor paper. Her work encourages the viewer to observe more closely and think about parts of subjects that we see regularly but do not often consciously examine.
