About the Artist
Lucile Haefflinger (b.1996, France) is drawn to a gentle cruelty, intimacy and violence through their practice. It seems inescapable that these terms cannot be separated and are in constant balance. Lucile draws by scratching and slicing into patches of pigment and glue, or scraping an idea into fresh oil paint. The soft, bodily quality of a brush in one hand, a ragged blade in the other. These images feel like they are excavated and found, as much as they are created. Lucile lives and works in London, UK.
