Contemporary Art Collection Acquisition by Lucy

LucyMc-Lazarides_copyrightMatthewWatkins

Lucy is proud to announce that her EDP installation has recently been acquired by Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery for their permanent Contemporary Art Collection. The work dates back to her first solo show, shown at Lazarides Gallery Greek St, London. Driven by her speech impediment ‘Expressive Deviant Phonology’ and her battle to communicate, this installation challenged the artist to a more direct form of communication; one between brush and instrument as she spontaneously painted an entire room whilst musicians played within the space. This interaction saw both music and artwork develop and change as the conversation continued throughout the night with exchanges of sounds and gestural mark making.

Lucy’s work is held in many private and public collections. Including permanent collections of the V&A Museum London, the British Government’s Art Collection Rome, Urban Nation Museum Berlin, State Centre of Contemporary Art Moscow and Soho House Collections in the UK and West Hollywood.

Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair by Lucy

Was a pleasure to be showing new work at the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair with Atelier Ji.

We printed a new 5 layer screen print at the fair which will soon be available on my shop and through Atelier Ji.

‘Remains’ 42 x 42cm on Somerset 300 gsm, edition of 30.

For this print I went back to what I regularly see and look for…

Remains - the faded abstractions of colour and texture found on walls before I climb up a ladder armed with my brushes and paint. Within my murals I leave these sections to reveal the wall's past history, adding to it’s story.

Opening the Floodgates by Lucy

Here's a short film we made of the 90m wall finished this week. 🎥 Film by Matthew Watkins

The basin is where Harker barges delivered oil for Shell Mex until the 1960's, the only boats to travel sea, river and canal. Now a place of stillness where sand martins and swans reside. Working with Worcestershire Wildlife Trust the hope is that the mural will provide spatial references and visual clues to help direct more Sand Martins to the nest pipes inside the wall.
