Artist's statement

Lucy Cooper is a London-based artist and printmaker whose current work explores the theme of reflection. Water reflections feature in many of her prints, while reflection in the broader sense of contemplation and consideration also runs through her art. 


Lucy’s prints invariably feature everyday sights of her local Docklands neighbourhood, which she photographs and then develops digitally. With a lifelong fascination with water and its constantly changing colours, textures and moods, she is particularly interested in the way light plays on the surface of water and the distortions made by reflections in water. Recent work exploring reflections, colours and patterns in contemporary London architecture expands this to the built environment. Exploiting the seemingly infinite possibilities and potential of working digitally, she explores unusual and often unexpected combinations of colour and pattern, transforming the original photograph into a semi-abstract artwork inviting the viewer to consider the subject from a different perspective. These images are then output as limited edition fine art giclée prints.
