"Lucy White's use of non-traditional materials links her with mid-twentieth-century Pop Art, but by definition she may be even more aligned with Arte Povera in her combination of conceptualism, minimalism, and the use of valueless materials. These materials, as well as her overtly domestic subject matter, are tributaries of feminism blended with earlier art movements." —The New Painting, by Ann Lloyd Wilson for the Decordova Museum
Lucy White's art incorporates organic materials as diverse as leaves, dirt and seaweed; household products including dishcloths, Handiwipes, Band-aids, and Kotex; and consumer artifacts such as thongs, vibrators, Tootsie Rolls, Zip-Loc bags, and rabbits' feet. Her works in series over the past thirty years, from organic resin paintings to schematic Band-aid imprints, and most recently, loose portrait sketches on felt, have persistently picked at the American myth and women's identity within it. She has exhibited in major galleries and museums in the United States.
