‘Ikea’ is an original sculptural piece by contemporary artist Lucy Bryant. The sculpture consists of a found ceramic figure, embellished with polymer clay, ceramic paint, varnish, doll’s house items and comes contained in a bell jar.
Lucy Bryant is a contemporary artist and graphic designer, whose work is influenced by Pop art and the Punk music scene. Her art subverts the everyday and the banal, always striving to disrupt the ordinary and create something entirely new. With a novel take on ‘found art’, her work appropriates antiquated artworks, turning away from the masters towards those unloved and unknown junk shop treasures. Onto these, Bryant has added anachronistic motifs to create an anarchically witty aesthetic.
For ‘Ikea’, Bryant transforms the traditional porcelain maiden - all floaty white skirts and pretty bobbed hair - into a twenty-first century shopper. Weighed down with her Ikea shop, hot-dog in hand, it’s no wonder little Laura gazes into the distance with dewey-eyed wonderment: all of those pinterest home boards are all about to become a reality…
From the Artist:
'Laura was exhausted but happy; she'd had a very successful trip to Ikea where she picked up the lamp, plant and bowls she needed. Laura even managed to stop off for a hotdog on the way out. It was only when she got home she realised; she'd completely forgotten the tealights. Damn!'
