‘Xylella Fastidiosa I, II and III’ acrylic on canvas, 109cm diamter. 2015

.

I’ve been visiting Grottaglie for many years now, enjoying the olives harvested from the surrounding area.

This year however I’ve come to learn of the bacteria Xylella Fastidious that is spreading rapidly throughout Puglia destroying the olive trees,

some of which are hundreds of years old. It is a very sad time.

Preparing the canvases in the olive grove…

A group show has just opened in the abandoned military Fort Bema Warsaw.

The painted forts are open throughout the year and worth checking out if you’re in town.

A great line up and wonderful hosts – experienced so much good local food.

Keep you eyes on the gallery’s blog and Facebook for more photos of all the work…

 

 

Thank you to Marcin, NeSpoon, Tomek and all the gang at Galarie Forty/Forty.

Fluorescent Smogg

‘Memories Forged’  Acrylic, ink, copper leaf on canvas. 101cm (Framed) 2015

.

.

Had a great time painting and exhibiting at the Fluorescent Smogg Project Space in Barcelona.

The installation was based around the very special edition made by Fluorscent Smogg, alongside my copper leafed Linocuts and booklets – thank you Denise for binding them all!

Thanks too for all the great press from JuxtapozWideWallsVNA

Fluorescent Smogg is pleased to present a new limited edition and site-specific installation by British artist Lucy McLauchlan. ‘Where Were You Before Now’ looks at the relationship between apparent fragile states and the strength they embody beneath the surface. This duality is apparent throughout her practice when the murals fade or are painted away, the image has gone but the strength of the memory remains. 

Taking her natural environment as inspiration, McLauchlan continues themes first explored in her 2014 London solo exhibtion ‘Marking Shadows’. Tracing the contours and surface of the landscape, the artist allows environmental factors to both inspire and influence the way in which she works. McLauchlan’s practice often entertains long-lasting permanent materials, allowing for a certain immediacy and pace within her distinctive mark making. For this show the installation inside the gallery will see the walls painted using a combination of fragile, delicate materials that wouldn’t necessarily last the test of time outdoors. 

In addition to this installation Fluorescent Smogg is thrilled to release a new series of exclusive limited editions. These were largely inspired by an ancient Japanese architectural process of burning wood to strengthen it. The simple act of burning would appear to weaken the wood but in fact it does the opposite, providing strength and protection. Each of the finely crafted editioned pieces embody this duality of fragility and strength which is considered through the materials and processes employed. 

The limited edition of 20 is comprised of a sculpture, booklet and Linocut. The sculpture has been carved from a solid chunk of sustainably harvested Honduran Cedarwood, housing a piece of screen printed copper inlaid into the charred surface. The booklet captures abstracted and literal references of the process and collected markings that informs the sculpture and therefore the site specific installation. The Linocut also reflects the way these initial hand painted brush marks have been transferred into the carved wood. Each edition is hand finished and printed by the artist.
