Lucy has her own unique painting style that she has honed over the years, and her bright colourful and joyous paintings are instantly recognizable. Her subject matter is predominately still life and interiors often incorporating female figures that move within and inhabit her decorative compositions . Lucy is represented by us at The Doorway Gallery situated in the heart of Dublin’s cultural city centre. The Georgian gallery jostles side by side with the best of the cities art galleries conveniently situated just off Nassau Street, opposite Trinity College.
‘Rococo’ is Lucy’s 15th major solo show’, which the gallery will host during the month of February. We plan to celebrate this event by a special RSVP opening, where we plan to entertain our special guests with a preview of Lucy’s new body of work in a relaxed atmosphere and the presents of Clodagh McKenna who will officially open the show.
The mood of ‘Rococo’ is inspired from that period in French Art History where a more relaxed, natural art style emerged. Artists and designers developed more assymetrical flowing design elements into their work, incorporating natural symbols of birds, flora and fauna.
Lucy taps on all these aspects of Rococo in her collection and experiments with a more lighter hued colour palette. She achieves this by working with earthy warm base notes of siennas and umbers then layering on thickly applied oil paint in sherbert pinks, french greys, powder blues and buttery yellows. Lucy’s paintings are full of verve and life and bring a smile to your face, embodying all that is good, in a celebration of feminine wholesomeness.
