Lucy White’s uniquely fashioned Band-Aid paintings deftly tackle the iconography in everyday objects – in part, by using everyday objects to create them.  They are poignant and provocative, yet are often so distilled that they appear deceptively simple.  In her work, common objects such as cell phones and panties become iconic and traditionally iconic images (flags, churches, peace symbols) are juxtaposed with an underlying Band-Aid treatment.  Even guns, integral objects to the history of America, are interwoven and cross-pollinated to conjure images of sexuality, violence and humor. 

Lucy White has exhibited her work at the DeCordova Museum, Rose Art Museum, Shore Institute of Contemporary Art, Bernard Toale Gallery and Mario Diacono Gallery, among others.  White received her BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design
