“Well, of the top of my head, there’s a connection with certain currents in British Painting – artists such as R. B. Kitaj and Stanley Spencer – and with German painters like Otto Dix or the Austrian, Gustav Klimt. On top of this, I’m interested in processes, in the production of pathos – as in the work of Käthe Kollwitz, for instance. One characteristic of my paintings is certainly the use of trompe-l’oeil effects, flat picture grounds, and a form of literalness. I like insidiousness and things that are supposed to manipulate the viewer. But probably the biggest influence on my painting technique is my dilettantism.” Lucy McKenzie, interview with Isabelle Graw Parkett No. 76, 2006
