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.

Woodcuts by Lucy

Following on from the success of my hand bound book of selected monoprints,  here a few more before an edition to be released through The Outsiders. After working closely with the Lazarides Master printers I hand carved 9 separate woodblocks to create numerous variations all of which produce a unique hand printed design onto traditional Japanese paper (all signed and dated, approx 50 x 50cm).
