Lucy Hardie is a Melbourne based artist best known for her meticulously rendered ink drawings on cotton paper. Her intricately constructed, evocative works are exhibited in Australia, the US and Europe and are featured in numerous art and literary publications worldwide. Through devotion to the creation of beauty, a fascination with death as a catalyst for transformation and new life, and the portrayal of story and symbol as a means of reflecting our shared human experience, her works present as visual allegories: inviting viewers in to deeper felt experiences of intimacy, connection, tenderness and power.
Hardie’s work is represented by PG Printmaker Gallery, Melbourne.
