Lucy Bryant is a contemporary artist and graphic designer, whose work is influenced by Pop art and the Punk music scene. Responding to contemporary culture, Bryant’s art subverts the everyday and the banal, always striving to disrupt the ordinary and create something entirely new.
Her recent series appropriates the classic, antiquated landscape painting: steering away from the iconic work of the masters, Bryant favours the unloved and the unknown, those over-worked pastiches of a Turner or a Constable, that fill the tables of junk shops.
Onto these, Bryant has added anachronistic motifs to create a jarring and unexpected end result.
‘EasyJet’ depicts a painting dated 1837, which details knights returning from battle, trotting towards a Medieval cathedral in a leafy idyll. Overhead, an EasyJet plane glides through the air, carrying holiday-makers to Fairiki, while the gallant horsemen can only dream of sun, sea, and sex on the beach.
