Lucy du Sautoy's paintings are created from a spirit of daydreaming and distraction.
Lucy’s subjects often engage the generic and commonplace, and capture the in-between spaces of our everyday lives. Images avoid reference to a specific time or place, and are deliberately narratively opaque. Instead, pictorial spaces become encountered scenarios - images that can be absorbed into, and overlaid with, the viewer’s own experience. Her aim is to take the viewer to a place with which they feel familiar yet know they have never been - to create a personal space for misty reminiscences and mused futures – to conjure a daydream.
Lucy regularly exhibits in group and solo shows. She is frequently commissioned and her work is held in private and corporate collections across the UK, and in Europe and the US.
Lucy graduated in 2015, with a first class Diploma in Fine Art from the Art Academy, London.
