LUCY BAKER

My current practice is an environment for experimentation. I am a painter and environment creator who aims to capture the narratives between painterly surfaces, application and subjects within a work. I would call myself an environment creator over a landscape painter, as I am not interested in trying to describe places that already exist. Instead, I attempt to create an environment for new places and storylines. Often, I find my work is just media depicting other media that I have previously absorbed. Each painting is a world created from personal taste as every subject has been selected according to the nostalgic connection or related ideal’s I have towards them. Each image has been processed and then reimagined in paint. My subjects have been digested and then recreated allowing a part of me to influence that object.
