Lucy James / by Anna Madeleine

Lucy James uses collage to manipulate found images of people, objects, animals and nature, into unexpected but carefully considered formations. She creates hybrid characters that could be from fantasy worlds, and people and words jumbled with machinery and mathematics. While playful, witty and incredibly visually compelling, the works are also powerful re-interpretations of historical and contemporary engagements between people, nature and technology, and the tension of these things unnaturally combined. Lucy James is showing at Anna Pappas Gallery, May 31 - July 7, 2012.
