Born in Cambridge in 1975, Lucy Skaer lives and works in Glasgow and London. Skaer uses a range of media, including drawing, sculpture and video. Her multi-layered pieces oscillate between the symbolic and the documentary, weaving together images drawn from the media, pictorial motifs, diagrams, heraldic elements, etc. into complex works that require attentive reading. Aside from developing her own practice, Skaer has collaborated with Rosalind Nashashibi on projects including “Flash at the Metropolitan,” exhibited as part of the 3rd Biennial for Video Art, Mechelen, Belgium (2007), and is also a founding member of the artist group ‘Henry VIII’s Wives’.
