INGRID LUCAS

Ingrid's paintings reflect concerns by creating dialogue, a voice reaching out through past and present with historical ambiguities and, in attempting not to be overly didactic, draws on media and photo imagery as the primary source for its inquiries.

Her paintings use colour and size to seduce the viewer into a world of time gone by. The recent Poverty series, invites the viewer into small and intimate scene with an ambiguity of time and space. Creating a visceral and emotional story of the invisible becoming visible – the seen often unseen, and forgotten.

‘At the heart is a social/political extension of me and how I see the world; my paintings attempt to be thought provoking and providing a language to discuss it, dealing with events and images that have had political impact in an attempt to remind us of lessons learnt and forgotten.’
