Lucy Loveridge
(click image to enlarge)

Lucy Loveridge’s work is comprised of a visual response to the portrayal of the female body that seeks to communicate the idealistic specifications of beauty in popular culture. Her approach to realism utilises the medium of oils and she chooses to paint images of the women she surrounds herself with on a daily basis. Painting from photographs – which, unlike the present media environment, have not been altered by Photoshop – Lucy attempts to depict a more honest, truthful representation of women with a hope to re-appropriate the painterly traditions of the female nude.
