Lucy Mink


I was introduced to this painter's work over at the great new site called (standard) INTERVIEW which showcases artists at work using a simple interview template . I had to giggle at the tag line; 'attempting insight since 2010'.

Lucy Mink is a painter I can really relate to. She plays with form and colour and clearly revels in the process. Her paintings are vibrant and dynamic. I love it when I see a form that breathes life and these paintings certainly do that! In her interview I was struck by her list of influential artists in which she includes Australian painter Elizabeth Cummings, also one of my personal favourites. I like her artists statement too;

I am consumed by combinations of color and form as a visual, abstract diary of my life where time does not belong to me, but to others. I am frequently organizing their things while they dance. I am in a situation.

The color on this is fantastic. Some might question it but...I think it is spot on!

So glad i found your blog on painters from Mary. I have been searching for other artists and what a treasury here to view. I will really enjoy following your findings!

Not surprised you like this artist. I see the similarities - and I think yours are as strong, as I often see the links to the everyday in your work in a far more lyrical manner. However, I certainly enjoy this work, too. Thanks again
