Born in 1990 in sunny Queensland, Australia, Lucie McIntosh is a visual artist, photographer and curator living and working from Melbourne, Australia. Lucie completed a Bachelor of Art (Fine Art) (Honours) with First Class at RMIT university in 2015, majoring in Print Imaging Practice. Lucie has a deep commitment to the independent arts community and has volunteered her time to a number of not–for–profit and contemporary art projects. She is currently Vice Chair and Program Curator at BLINDSIDE, an independent, artist – run space based in the heart of Melbourne.
Lucie’s exhibition and research based practice explores politics surrounding notions of the image and the materialities of the photographic ‘image object’. Lucie engages with themes of knowledge, perception and representation, reflecting upon the nature of seeing by building relationships between viewers, objects and space.
Lucie’s broader photographic practice is dominated by moments of quietness, the magic in the ordinary and environmental fragility. Central to the work lies a defense of beauty in which reality and a dream become interchangeable and the idea of perception is explored. Unconcerned with objectivity, Lucie’s lens based work acknowledges notions of beauty as paradoxical, elusive and complex yet also significant and indispensable to human experience.
