Fragile Hand (Petals Tapping like Nervous Fingers) – Lucy Ralph, Central Saint Martins

Oil and gesso on semi-primed canvas
120cm x 150cm

My painting, often inspired by poetry, contains enigmatic narratives.

I use fragmented and partially erased forms in order to portray my perception of women and more largely speaking, human beings, in contemporary societies. I want to sensitise the viewer to how little we know about people and make visible the strength of women amongst the fragile state of humanity

I often use bare canvas, thinking of negative space, as I believe this opens the image to numerous possibilities. This invites the viewer into a space to imagine and speculate, bringing them closer to sensitive and often personal realities, which embody sense of struggle, hope and presence.
