Lucy Luckovich Postcard Front 002 Scaled

Lucy Luckovich, an Atlanta-based artist, presents a series of paintings that allude to the concept of watching “in order to explore how female objectification has been impacted by the ongoing Digital Age - Her work confronts the intertwining and duplicitous concepts of womanhood, consumption, and technology. Luckovich’s paintings are traditional in technique, but function within a greater conversation that is situated inside our current Digital Age. Using cherries, chains, and pearls to partially obstruct the backgrounds reinforces that each subject is presented as just an object - not a girl or a body, but the artist’s concept of an - Initial Object.
