Lucinda Oestreicher’s paintings are concerned with a balance between visual experience (of landscape, houses, domestic objects & interiors) and the language of painting.
Recent works refer to her exploration of footpaths in East Sussex.
Both the visual and the physical experience of repeatedly walking the local pathways of East Sussex are used by Oestreicher as a starting point for exploring painting. In the process of painting she grapples with a balance between colour, weight, line and a sense of particular place. There is an absence both figurative (human presence is only hinted at by the lines made by people walking over centuries) and literal, what is left out, erased or pared back during painting, and what is made explicit.
Lucinda Oestreicher studied Fine Art at the Slade School of Art, the Central School of Art and Bath Academy of Art. She lives and works in London and East Sussex.
