ARTIST INFO

About 

Lucy Neish (b.1997), resides in London and completed her BA in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts in 2020. She paints on She paints on homemade canvases constructed from remnants of past paintings, working with their previous history to coax out new artworks; a cat dead in grass; a goldfinch wrapped in kitchen towel; a twinkling disco ball. Working from found imagery - film screenshots, pictures circulated on WhatsApp groups, photos inadvertently captured and buried deep in a phone’s camera roll - she goes through a process of gathering and collating, creating cinematic collections that remove a subject from its original context and distorts their original intention. Painting these images with a monochromatic or sepia palette, they are unified by an implied gaze and evoke feelings of nostalgia. Far from rose-tinted, however, Neish’s nostalgia is murky, muddy and unsettling. ⁣Neish has recently completed the Good Eye Projects residency.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork 

“I work from found imagery - film screenshots, pictures circulated on WhatsApp groups, photos inadvertently captured and buried deep in a phone’s camera roll - I go through a process of gathering and collating. I am drawn to a duality found in sentimental images. I make precisely made drawings that might also be disorientating and ambiguous in how they are read.”
