Lucy's practice takes a critical view of socio-cultural subjects, referencing the visual vernacular from contemporary modern life. Exploring the complex relationships between pop-culture, kitsch and fine art, she crafts perfect messages imperfectly. On closer inspection, her photo-realist style, is simple mark marking, strokes and scribbles, all layered evidence of the passage of time.
Her subject matter is rendered through a hyper-real colour palette but there is often a dark underbelly railing against the idealism, a shadow over the idyll to remind us of the transitory nature of experience.
Her fascination with retro aesthetics has been an influence in her work, her love/hate relationship with Memphis inspired graphics of the 80’s.
