Femme Fatale
1 – 16 August, 2014

Born in Shepparton, Victoria, Lucy began her education at a Waldorf school that her parents built on their farm and it was here that her artistic inclinations were fostered. Surrounded by her parent's extensive collection of art books, she became enchanted at an early age by the work of Grünewald, Repin and the illustrations by H. J. Ford and Ivan Bilibin, often losing herself in their otherworldy imagery.

Hardie’s work has been exhibited throughout Australia, in Austria and the US and featured in a variety of publications, including Curvy, Semi-Permanent and Slice Magazine. She holds a Bachelor of Illustration from NMIT in Melbourne and in 2009, travelled to Austria to study with US artist, Philip Rubinov Jacobson in a method of painting using a combination of resin, egg tempera and oils.

Lucy thinks of herself as a modern romantic and her meticulously rendered ink drawings reflect the influence of Vali Myers, Ernst Fuchs, Albin Brunovsky and Vania Zouravliov, however inspiration is also derived from natural phenomena, fairy tales and Integral Philosophy.

Limited edition giclee prints of her drawings are presented together with originals in this exhibition.
