Breaking out of art's boundaries. Lucy McKenzie at Galerie Daniel Buchholz and at Museum Ludwig, Cologne

Lucy McKenzie's art reads like a picture book – yet by no means a children's book mind you. The work of the Scottish lass is characterised by her studies conducted at the Ecole Van Der Kelen-Logelain, the academy for trompe l’oeil and decorative painting in Brussels. Her latest work is based on the novel 'The Girls of Slender Means'. Women only? Not at all!

The novel was written in 1963 and is about girls with limited options, it evolves around the life of penniless women in a dormitory in post-war Kensington. The title, 'Slender Means', relates to the atmosphere and the impressions relayed through the imagery.

Lucy McKenzie was born in Glasgow 1977, studied Art in Dundee as well as at the Kunstakademie in Karlsruhe and currently lives in Brussels. Frequently, her work transgresses the boundaries of art and delves into the world of craft.

She is currently involved in a creative collaboration with the Vienna-based Mühlbauer millinery. She creates their background pictures and contributes to the design of hats, together with designer Beca Lipscombe.

A comprehensive selection of her artistic print works is part of the collection of the Museum Ludwig in Cologne and will be exhibited as part of an installation from the 10th of December 2010 to the 26th of June 2011.

From the 10th of December 2010 to the 26th of February, the Daniel Bucholz gallery in Cologne will be showing 'Slender Means' in the main room in the Neven-DuMont Street.

Pivate view on the 10th of December, from 7pm to 9pm.
