Lucy Wilner
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Dumbo


ARTIST STATEMENT: My paintings explore the realms of imagination evoked by todayÕs new ecological and transspecies consciousness. Far from naturalistic, they present symbolic relationships, especially those between human beings, our histories, tools and environments, and the natural world. Whatever narratives are suggested are open-ended.

I am motivated by the ambition to create a comprehensive kind of painting, one in which any particular image can be seamlessly incorporated. I also want my painting to seem convincingly three-dimensional, despite including several or many different spaces. And finally, I want it to have a kind of vastness or universalityÑin other words, for it to be, through the use of metaphors and referents that enlarge its scope, a virtual cosmos.
