British born Lucy McLauchlan large-scale monochromatic paintings have covered multi-story buildings across Europe, gigantic billboards in China, windows in Japan, huts in The Gambia, Italian water towers, Norwegian lighthouse, Detroit car parks and abandoned NYC subway tunnels. Implicit within her work is a deep respect for nature as she draws inspiration from her immediate environment; allowing it to inform and direct what is an intuitive and explorative process.
Within Lucy’s ongoing ‘investigation’ into some of Birmingham’s more unapparent areas, ‘Birmingham By Pass’ features new works referencing her days spent along the canals and waterways of Digbeth. Culminating in an installation at the intimate gallery space located just off the canal within our partner venue Centrala.
Lucy’s residency runs from the 9th June to the 8th July, with works along the surrounding canal side.
