Painter Lucy Stein's distinctive figurative painting style always verges on abstraction. Her enigmatic figures, strange vignettes and dreamlike scenarios are produced by an approach to making that she likens to 'a game of consequences played with myself'. Working intuitively, through an on-going series of additions and subtractions, she allows the process of painting to shape the form and content of her images, while also alluding to themes such as memory, hysteria and method acting explored by writers and philosophers as diverse as Daphne du Maurier, Jean-Paul Sartre and Kathy Acker.
