To create I have to work in a poetic way. For me, the human body with its shapes, lines, colours proves invaluable everything to work with: I am influenced by nature and, indeed, by the vagaries and absolutism of fashion.
I have been asked, “Why is there so many different types of art work as if done by different artists.” To me it’s simple. The world gives as a lot, just like stones, trees, different animals and humans so I am the world too. I should be able to produce different things because we all speak different languages but the translation is the same.
In Lucy’s work, nothing is wasted; objects are symbolic, distortions are symbolic, colours are symbolic, and rarely do we see such uniqueness, adventurousness and variety in a young artist’s oeuvre.
