Working mainly on duotone, Lucy McLauchlan creates a world full of stories and governed by a passionate instinct that translates into almost gestural painting, an almost performative act. Lucy’s art combines ancient, almost prehistoric influences with a modernist graphic sensibility. The creative impulse that binds these two different references together constitutes its clear stylistic code, which gives its work an immediately recognizable style. A diaspora of other influences including art deco, psychedelia, naturalism and contemporary figurativism consolidate its elegant charm distributed between Lisbon, Marrakech, Stavanger and of course her hometown Birmingham. Four of her art works are part of the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
With Forgotten Project she will create her first art work in Rome
