    Details

    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 ‘Primark’, Bryant transforms the traditional Dutch milkmaid into a spendthrift millennial, weighed down with full-to-the-brim Primark bags, slung across her shoulders. Yes, Anne might have had a full day of bargain-fun, but maybe she should learn to replace the lace on her full white skirts, before frittering her pennies on fast-fashion - because, let’s face it, even pretty Anne can’t pull off the toxic-waste-micro-fibres-in-the-sea-sweat-shop look.

    From the Artist

    'Anne had had a lovely day ‘up west’ as they used to say on Eastenders. She’d bought herself a whole new wardrobe AND had change for a cold brew coffee (she had NO idea what that was but heard flat whites were definitely ‘out’) out of £20. Good for her. BUT. What Anne wasn’t thinking about was the impact on the environment that her shopping spree would cause. Polyester microfibres would find their way into the oceans, to be consumed by sea life. Millions of tonnes of barely worn fast fashion would end up as landfill and the toxic smoke from burning the landfill would cause pollution on a huge scale. So Anne, maybe, quality over quantity and perhaps learn to darn those socks.'
