Much of Lucy’s work focuses on the human form and looking for the thread that reconnects us to our underlying nature. She is fascinated by the relationship between the figure and the rich, luminous quality of oil paint: translucent shadows and sumptuous opaques. She enjoys the fact that she is working in a tradition that stretches back to Velasquez and Titian; the naked body has the emotive impact it had then but in a modern context such different connotations. Her figures help us to access our own vulnerability.
