Have you met…Lucy Hogg?
An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Lucy Hogg.
Lucy Hogg was born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, and currently lives in New York, NY.
“These portfolios of images examine the situations where art is found, in production or in its finished state, in studios, art schools, museums, biennales, the street, and sometimes the domestic realm.
Humans are hard-wired to manipulate reality: We are devoted to constructiing, acquiring, rearranging, deconstructing, recycling and disposing of stuff.
Art is as much a byproduct of such urges as it is an elevated, freestanding activity. In my photographs I hope to explore the modes of consumption common to art and the everyday.” LH
