Paradox

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.

Film Release by Lucy

So happy to announce that the short film by Matthew J Watkins that has been accompanying my show in New Zealand is available for all to see...with very special music from the Clear Stones LP by Fis and Rob Thorne.

Massive thanks to Matt, Fis and Rob

UK artist Lucy McLauchlan was invited to New Zealand in April 2017 for the Paradox street art festival hosted by Tauranga Art Gallery and curated by Oi YOU! This short film by Matt Watkins documents behind the scenes of Lucy's process and environment while featuring the sounds of two unique New Zealand musicians; Fis (Oliver Peryman) & Rob Thorne (Ngāti Tumutumu) with "Front Ear", a collaborative track taken from their LP "Clear Stones" released on Subtext Recordings.

"Oi YOU! and Nelson City Framers are bringing a selection of works by the UK’s foremost female street artist, Lucy McLauchlan, to Nelson!

Lucy is represented by Banksy’s former manager Steve Lazarides and Banksy once said of Lucy “She draws like an angry sparrow stuck up a tree” but having seen her in action, we at Oi YOU!, feel that watching her works is more like a Russian ballerina performing Swan Lake.

After headlining in the hugely successful Paradox Street Art Festival in Tauranga, the works made specifically for that show are being made available alongside a bunch of artworks created specifically for Nelson. There will also be limited edition screen-prints available to ensure that there is something to meet all budgets."

Tauranga Charity Auction by Lucy

I've donated art work for a charity auction, linked to the Paradox show in Tauranga New Zealand and the Youth Street Art Exhibition initiative, please read on for more info.

"Paradox is kicking along well with huge visitor numbers continuing at the gallery (we will hit 19,000 today) with popular Live & Local events.

One of our key initiatives for the Live & Local strategy has been the Paradox Youth Art Auction

In addition we wanted to run an auction to help out our neighbours in Edgecumbe who were recently hit by serious flooding and many of them have lost everything they own. "
