Lucy's artwork 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, scratches, scribbles all layered evidence of the passage of time.
Her subject matter is rendered through a hyper-real colour palette with a dark underbelly railing against the idealism, a shadow over the idyll to remind us of the transitory nature of experience.
The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials used, it is not unusual for some paintings to languish inactive for several years until they find the path to completion.
Retro aesthetics are channelled through her work the 80's being a particular influence with a nod to the ubiquitous graphics of Memphis design aesthetic, Syd Brak Athena posters.
