Lucy Jones, Just Looking, Just Checking on You, 2019, Oil on canvas
Following the presentation of Lucy Jones: Landscape and Inscape at Flowers Gallery, Cork Street in May 2019, Attenborough Arts Centre present Lucy Jones: Awkward Beauty a comprehensive retrospective of the art of Lucy Jones in all three gallery spaces.
British artist Lucy Jones is renowned for her raw, wild landscapes and distinctively provocative self-portraits, characterised by expressive brushwork and bold use of vibrant colour. Balancing an intricate rendering of line and space in her landscapes with the powerful simplicity of her portraits, Jones’s paintings conduct a journey through both interior landscapes and the external world beyond.
The show also includes Jones's 2017 commission to create a portrait of Grayson Perry for the Attenborough Arts Centre.
