Lucy Skaer

Skaer is said to make ‘”images that tell us primarily about imagery.” Taking images rather than objects as her starting point, she works schematically and according to her own constructed systems. Methods include reconstructions with complex, self-derived drawing and printing processes. From 1997 Skaer co-founded the collaborative group Henry VIII’s Wives, and worked at Transmission gallery in Glasgow, where she had her first solo show in 2000.


Skaer’s solo presentations include a mid-career retrospective at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, Murray Guy, New York, Tramway, Glasgow, Sculpture Center, New York, Tulips & Roses, Brussels, Chisenhale Gallery, London, and The Centre Pompidou, Paris. In 2003 Skaer was short-listed for the art prize Becks Futures and exhibited at the first Scottish presentation at the Venice Biennale, where she also presented in 2007. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2009.
