#BAREWITHME: LUCINDA LAW

I must confess that until my photo shoot with Lucinda at a suitably verdant Lloyd’s Inn, we had never before met. I discovered her a while ago by way of Instagram (what did I tell you?), and I have been a fan since. Hers is an inspired, earnest and foliaceous feed that would draw you in deeper and deeper like an enchanted forest. Some snooping and a little thing called instinct told me there’s something special about this woman. Just like that, I took a chance and made a cold call. As she varooms into the hotel on her Vespa, as she removes her helmet to reveal a bare face with nary a trace of make-up on her caramel-coloured skin and walks towards me, everything feels exactly right.

“Hello, Karman.” 

The Law of nature has spoken.

I thought, how very lovely if I could paint orchids and plants for a living when I grew up.

First artist to illustrate Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore cover

The phone call from BAZAAR to work on the February issue was completely unexpected and I was overjoyed. I was immediately inspired, because it merges my passion for the arts, design, fashion, culture and botany. I’m a self-confessed enthusiast of the natural history of flora and fauna, so this is a dream theme for me; I wanted something that celebrates this idea of Old World beauty that’s, in its special way, making a resurgence.

The process was rather tactile. First, I traced and observed the lines and curves of the font and logo up-close (I’ve always admired art director Alexey Brodovitch, who innovated BAZAAR‘s iconic Didot logo). Then, I researched the species of plants that I wanted to include. I chose climbers and vine plants because I love how they not only have a fairytale-like beauty about them, but have one of the most amazing abilities in nature to grow upwards in tendrils towards precious sunlight. I also interviewed my sister, a plant expert and gardener, who presented an extensive list of climber plants to me.

It took about 230 hours to paint for this project.
