Lucy 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.

This film file is broken and is being removed. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
