Artist Statement:

Lucy Sharpe is an artist, student and cook living in Montreal. Her practice revolves primarily around mindful hedonism, as well as sex, cooking, feminism, intergenerational relationships and climate justice.


My work Philosophies of Pleasure investigates the way that indulgence allows us to more genuinely interact with one another. We are often taught to feel guilt about the things that make us feel good, and that guilt prevents us from genuinely engaging both physically and spiritually with those around us. By freeing yourself from shame, you are enabling yourself to interact with sincerity.
