Lucy McKenzie

This book, which was conceived and designed by the artist herself, presents her work of
the last three years in text and image. Her huge paintings illustrate interiors and reference
interior design drafts from the 19th century. In these paintings, which are up to
eight metres tall, she uses the historical technique of Trompe-loeil painting and exhibits
them like pieces of theatre scenery in museums in Edinburgh, San Fransisco, New York
and Cologne. In this book she explains the motivation behind her complex approach. This is complimented by two more written pieces: a fi ctional account of her time studying Trompeloeil painting at the Ecole van der Kelen (a traditional painting school in Brussels) and a homage to the fashion designer Beca Lipscombe, one of her collaborators in Atelier.
