Lucy's work blends the real and the imagined in scenes that combine the sense of being an outsider, feelings of being alone but not alone and bridging the ordinary and the uncanny. She strives to capture the natural world and small everyday things contemplatively by presenting an altered interpretation.

Recurring themes in her work include loneliness, nostalgia and the notions of sonder and liminality. These themes are explored through detailed drawings composed of multi-layered graphite marks on paper, a process that is meditative and creates a textured dimensionality and movement.

 

Creating narratives in bleak and desolate environments, populated by strange figures and out of place objects, invites the viewer to contemplate more than what is seen in her work. The works become a peculiar mirror on which the viewers can layer their own perceptions and meaning.
