A formidable painter known for her deployment of illusionistic trompe l’oeil effects and architecturally-scaled installations, Lucy McKenzie (b. Glasgow, 1977) quickly established herself as one of the most exciting artists of her generation.

Developed in close collaboration with the artist herself, and featuring over 100 works dating from 1997 to the present, the exhibition will for the first time examine the full scope of her oeuvre. It will bring together examples from all of the artist’s significant bodies of work, including early paintings relating to pop music and Cold War-era Olympic games; her subsequent engagement with the traditions of Scottish and Eastern European muralism and Belgian illustration; and large-scale paintings based on historic architectural styles. Also included are the collaborative fashion label and research bureau Atelier E.B.; recent works blurring the lines between painting, sculpture, and furniture; as well as new works commissioned especially for the exhibition.

 

Curator: Jacob Proctor

 

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue published by Walther König.

 

Event tip: On September 12, at 7:00 p.m., Lucy McKenzie will discuss her work with curator Jacob Proctor in a digital live talk on YouTube and provide insights into her work. The talk will be available afterwards in the media library of Museum Brandhorst and on YouTube.
