Scottish artist Lucy McKenzie is very much influenced by the work of Belgian artist Herge, creator of Tintin, the young detective with the short trousers and never-changing hairstyle. This is quite clear in some of her newer pieces, especially the cartoon drawings and the ‘real life’ sketches of Tintin. Her latest exhibition also includes a series of erotic pencil drawings and some large-scale chalk and charcoal abstracts a la Mondrian. Keith and Kerry are works from a previous exhibition entitled Global Views.
Lucy McKenzie: SMERSH will be on view from September 10–October 8, at the Metro Pictures Galley in New York.
