‘UNFOLD’ solo show, June 2019.
A collection of canvas and paper works, painted in and across woodlands, waterways and wastelands.
Sharing a common theme, each piece evolved from painting on site in different locations from Moscow to Bordesley. These works have grown from Lucy’s large scale mural painting, relating directly through the very physical act of painting outside on site, dealing with varied surfaces and unknown external factors while considering it’s final ephemerality. All of which has intrinsically led her to capture these permanent manifestations.
