Artist: Lauren DiCioccio

I LOVE these paintings!

Vogue JUL07:pg145 (Ripeness is All)

Vanity Fair MAY2008:pg268 (and, incredibly, looking not a day older)

What Lauren says about her dot drawings:

Fashion magazines are the source materials for my series color codification dot drawings. I make each piece on a sheet of frosted mylar laid over a magazine page. After assigning a color to every letter in the alphabet (numbers are in grayscale, 0=white and 9=black), I apply tiny dots of paint over every character on the page. Each drawing I make has a different color codification, and therefore a different palette. The resulting painting is a legible blur of dots in the form of the article’s layout — like a system of Braille for the color inclined.
