Lucy Skaer (British, born 1975)
Skaer’s work stems from an interest in found imagery which she uses as a basis for reinterpretation. Working on paper, Skaer’s often large drawings become abstract and ambiguous, operating, in her own words, as “a portal into a space beyond comprehension”. Skaer has frequently returned to images of cadavers and Rorschach blots and more recently she has begun to explore sculpture and installation-based work, such as her three-dimensional versions of the famous inkblots. Born in Cambridge, from 1993-7 Skaer studied Fine Art in the Environmental Art department at Glasgow School of Art, a course which has produced numerous successful artists. She represented Scotland at the 2007 Venice Biennale and in 2009 was nominated for the Turner Prize.
