Prior to the pandemic, Lydia’s figurative oil painting took her from London to Florence to Samoa, where she painted on location and from life. Deprived of life models to work from in 2020, Lydia turned to photography to get her figurative references. This opened new opportunities for capturing people in candid, unscripted moments. Taking a vast assortment of spontaneous imagery back to 64a Flat 1, Lydia painted sensitive portrayals of Gozitans from the viewpoint of the unseen observer.
