Through the looking glass
36 x 48 inches
Acrylic, ink, and gouache on canvas
Lucy Pike explores the amorphous nature of the human condition through the push and pull of both translucent and opaque layers. She is particularly drawn to the myriad ways in which women are expected to embody conflicting ideals in society and probes these perceptions through the use of acrylic, ink, and gouache. Her paintings express both the strength and softness she has discovered through motherhood and seek to embody her interpretation of the feminine experience.
