Lucie Panenkova

Lucie Liudmila Panenkova is a Russian artist who draws pen and ink compositions of various nature, often in plain black & white or with light colouring added. She was born in Moscow, Russia in 1986, and currently lives and works in Dubai, UAE.

Her expression method is based on the attraction of the audience’s attention to the details and switching on the individual's creative thinking. Lucy tries to study how perception works and find the visual symbols which could easily be associated with the daily senses and emotional states and subsequently memorised.

Keeping her personal anthropological insight on the modern “art de vivre”, taking into consideration the political and economic sensations, religious and ideological topics, Lucie concentrates on working out the "emotional alphabet" useful for all, above the national, cultural, educational and even gender factors; Lucy can identify her graphic style as "magical realism", designed to show other dimensions in which ordinary things may live.

"My art concept is based on applying to the individual emotional experience, both positive and negative ones. Throughout the centuries politics, economics, periods of the war and peace, revolutions and religious struggles, the innovation and technology discoveries affected the people lives just creating challenging survival circumstances, but they have never affected the emotional development of each personality from childhood till old age. Teenagers search for themselves, struggling for love and the right professional choices, existential crises of the mid ages and so on - the emotions capturing us are meant to make us all equal disregarding the national or religious or gender issues. The changes in the emotional experience are the true reason of the human evolution."

Lucie’s drawing was influenced by studying the engraving art techniques of Gustave Dore and Francisco Goya, her ideas are still largely focused on the nature of the goodness and evil in the mankind following Ieronim Bosch; her inspiration finds her studying the works of Rene Magritte, Edward Hopper, "metaphysical painting" of  Dali and Escher's imp-art.
