“Loner Lucy” is a depiction of a situation we all know probably just a tad too well. Lucy is a girl, but more than a mere certain person, Lucy is a dedication to everyone who has been alone, but refused to be dragged into the dark feeling of loneliness and emptiness. Here, loneliness is translated as a chance to get back to the inner self, find the truest pleasure of being alone and still loving oneself. Being alone gives a chance to think, focus, retrospect and reflect. In the end it will offer a new, even more beautiful outlook on life. Being grateful to whatever life is presenting is no longer impossible. “Loner Lucy” is about the ability to be alone and not feel lonely. Both artists view this ability as an art itself. Art of self-reliance, if you will.
