Ice Blue is an original painting by Lucy Powell. Lucy’s unique style effortlessly blends impressionism with cubism and the bold colours that she uses make a big statement.
After graduating from Wimbledon School of Art in 1985, and working as a representational artist most of my life I came to realise that I wanted to embrace uncertainty and to explore new challenges both with my painting and the intellectual thinking which underpinned it.
I listened, looked, read and discussed my uncertainties, not abandoning the figurative world around me, but building on it. I pushed myself with every painting I did, interpreting the balance of nature that so inspires me, by exploring the qualities of paint, texture and composition; allowing the work to evolve instinctively as I searched for a way to express the beauty I experience in the natural rhythms of colour and light, and form and space.
Now I no longer think of each work as an end in itself, but rather as a stepping stone to an inspiring, ever evolving journey of exploration and expression.
I exhibit regularly at The Russell Gallery in London, The Montcrieff Bray Gallery in Sussex, The Rosvik Gallery in Wiltshire and Art Fairs in London and throughout the country.
