Lucy Skaer: large drawings

Skaer's drawings utilise found imagery sourced from photojournalistic reportage. Working on paper - large stretches that in scale resemble unfurled banners, flags or giant scrolls, typically, the main substance of her drawings is graphite to which she adds enamel paint, ink and gold leaf.

By merging photo-orientated images with different forms of patterning, Skaer creates shifting collages that, once distanced from their original source, become open to alternative interpretations.
