’Wonder - Where Reality And Imaginary Collide’

The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum

29 June – 15 September

Seven remarkable artists have been united to take you on a journey to enchanting new worlds, one of unexpected environments, and dreamlike realities.

Lucy has created an installation inside The Herbert’s main gallery space.

The four site responsive works on display combine her mural and print practices in order to document her journey taken across Coventry. Taking the time to print directly from the surrounding area allowed for conversations with passers by. It provided space to observe Coventry with fresh eyes. All of which culminated in these exploratory large scale works.

'Silence Surrounds Cement (Part.1)' Ink, cement and canvas, 270 x 200cm.

This Will Ruin Everything – 10 Years of Recoat

“Recoat is a Scottish, grass-roots arts organisation that specialises in contemporary urban art. This year marks its 10th anniversary, celebrating a decade of exhibitions, mural projects, and education programmes.

As part of the anniversary celebrations, The Lighthouse in Glasgow has invited Recoat to curate the exhibition, ‘This Will Ruin Everything’. The exhibition features forty Scottish and international artists and designers exhibiting a broad range of creative practices, from architecture to digital art to painting. The show will also feature the Lighthouse’s first ever mural, a Recoat Gallery retrospective installation and screenings of films about Recoat’s projects.

‘This Will Ruin Everything’ was a comment directed at Recoat during a mural project. It sums up the debate around public art, its purpose, function and value. 

The exhibition and programme of workshops, panel discussions and screenings aim to encourage dialogue around the distinctions between design and art in contemporary creative practice and celebrates the talented creatives who move between them. Through discussions, screenings and workshops, Recoat aims to challenge audiences on their ideas around function, value, ownership and elitism.

Exhibiting artists include- 44 Flavours, Ade Adesina, Jennifer Argo, Askew, Will Barras, Erin Bradley Scott, Rebecca Davies, Elph, EMA, FiST, Emily Fong, David Galletly, Good Wives and Warriors, Fraser Gray, Lee Ivett, Jamie Johnson, Kidacne, Chris Macfarlane, Mark Lyken, Lucy MacLeod, Radik Liwen, Tommy Mason, Neil McGuire, Lucy McLauchlan, Matt,W.Moore, Matt Mignanelli, Morag Myerscough, Nawer, Tommy Perman, Risotto, Rue Five, ROID MSK, Sheone, Emer Tumulity, Kirsty Whiten, Maya Wild, Susie Wright, Denise Zygadlo.

'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.
