Mono-Print Diptych Release by Lucy

 

A new collection of mono-prints are to be released this week in the online shop with a pop-up show opening Thursday 14th Feb at The Framers Birmingham. These screen-prints are just a short run, each unique and come as a pair.

Mono-Print Diptych Release:

30 x 40cm mounted, signed and numbered

Individual prints 12 x 17cm, stamped and dated on the reverse

4 colour, hand-pulled screen print

on acid free 270gsm paper

£45

(Head to the shop now)

As with all of Lucy’s screen-prints these too are hand-pulled, allowing Lucy to spontaneously position each layer and colour choice to produce an intuitively driven collection reflecting her mural painting process.

This technical experimentation combines multiple layers utilising mat inks against gloss inks, with fluorescent reds and metallic coppers creating a more textural set of mono-prints.

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.

Human Flow by Lucy

Thank you everyone who came down last night and showed support at the Stirchley Community Market.  We raised a fair amount but shall now put the prints in the online shop and continue collecting for the Help Refugees and the Human Flow fund.

I watched Ai Weiwei's film 'Human Flow' the night before I was selling at the market. I couldn't comfortably sell without contributing something to this ongoing situation in the world. I decided to sell off my linocut's I made earlier in this year* and donate all profits. It's a small step but a start.

*At the beginning of the year I made a series of linocuts 'There Are Voices To Be Heard', based on drawings responding to the daily reports of the refugee crisis. Since then Brexit seems to have muffled over much of those reports. But with 65.6 million people forcibly displaced this is still a massive and vast issue. 

 

New Prints by Lucy

Been experimenting in the print studio...over the next couple weeks I'll release small runs of a few favourites, here's the first 3 available now, inspired by my recent trip to New Zealand for the Paradox exhibition at Tauranga Art Gallery. The titles also pay homage to the musicians Fis & Rob Thorne's collaborative LP "Clear Stones" which accompanied the short film Matthew Watkins made documenting my time in Tauranga.

'EDP Series I - Group II (Revisited)' by Lucy

10 years ago I installed the site-specific work 'Expressive Deviant Phonology’ at the Soho gallery Lazarides.  This was my first solo show and was based around my childhood speech impediment (E.D.P). 
The work emerged as an experimental 'conversation' where during the course of one night I painted every available surface in response to the improvised music played by passing friends until the entire room was immersed in brush marks and sound. 

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the gallery I have revisited this installation to create a new series of prints. Using the remaining pieces of painted wallpaper I have spontaneously collaged and screen-printed them together to create these new unique works
