Skaer makes drawings, sculptures and films which often take found photographic sources as their starting point.



Rooted in reality, yet subjected to a process of elaborate transformation, Skaer’s images hover in the space between recognition and ambiguity, figuration and abstraction. Lucy Skaer has been nominated for her solo exhibition at the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh and A Boat Used as a Vessel at the Kunsthalle Basel.
