For New Hampshire-based artist Lucy Mink, oil painting is a form of visual diary. “My work is mostly a reflection of internal experiences or situations—not single events per se, more like what is happening to me over a year or a few months,” she has said. “If you were to look at any one of my works from the past three years, I could probably tell you exactly what was happening in my life, and what was happening in my relationships with my kids, family, my life, and so on.” These studies of color and form are works of pure abstraction, with shapes piled up on one another with little suggestion of illusionistic space and neutral background. However, they often call to mind images from everyday life, from piles of fabric to the human body.
