Description

Born into the semiotic seductions of the 1980s, Scottish painter Lucy McKenzie reworks the iconography of that decade to foster associations between the most unlikely sources--East European propaganda murals, German abstract painting, Cold War imagery, industrial typefaces and 1980s synth-pop. To embellish this wide-ranging lexicon, she often collaborates with fashion designers, musicians and interior designers on works that have been exhibited as theatrical sets at museums in Edinburgh, San Francisco, New York and Cologne, winning her an international following. Ch'ne De Weekend introduces new paintings that reference nineteenth-century trompe l'oeil paintings used for interior design, part of McKenzie's participation in Atelier, an interior design collective. Alongside reproductions of works, it includes a fictional account of her study of trompe l'oeil and an homage to the fashion designer Beca Lipscombe, one of her collaborators in Atelier.show more
