Lucy MacQueen’s intention is to create paintings that have movement; if you look at a photograph of water, it is static, so she has come up with a unique process to give her work some depth.

She etches the highlights of water;  the foam,  peaks, and crests of waves and so on,  onto plexiglass and then mounts that on top of her paintings.

MacQueen mounts the plexiglass using stand offs and keeps it about an inch off the painted panel. The etching causes shadows to fall on the painting and as you walk around the work, it changes, mimicking the ever-changing nature of water.
