Lucy Bryant (Haus of Lucy) is a contemporary multi-media artist and graphic designer. Responding to contemporary culture, Lucy’s art subverts the everyday and the banal, always striving to disrupt the ordinary and create something entirely new.
Her print series appropriates the classic, antiquated landscape painting and onto these, Lucy has added anachronistic motifs to create a jarring and unexpected end result: is that an easyJet plane, gliding through a fifteenth century sunset? And what’s that Shell Oil truck doing in the middle of a nineteenth century pastoral scene?
The series for Art On A Postcard
‘I wanted to create a series of work that would resonate. I love to mix old masters with contemporary elements, giving them a new life and a relevance for current times.
Delivery Day: I want people to look at my lady with her online haul and relate to the same feel of anticipation (and always some guilt!) of what lies inside those bags.
Town Center: The town center was crying out for a Primark, a Greggs, Chicken Cottage and an All Bar One for a large Pinot Grigio after a long day of shopping.
Prime Time: I added an Amazon Prime lorry to the beautiful landscape because I wanted an element which would jar and ‘spoil’ the scene in the same way we can never escape pylons, planes and the hum of traffic when we’re out trying to ‘escape’ urban life.
The Stag Do: I wanted to create that feeling at the end of a big night out or stag do – where you feel so tired and so sick you wonder if any of it was worth it. Then you remember what Dave did with that blow-up doll and you realise that yes, it was all worth it.
Art doesn’t need to be serious!
