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
