– Artists – Lucy McLauchlan


In an era when visual images are styled to perfection using technology, Lucy McLauchlan crafts using permanent materials like Indian ink and marker pen. “If I make a mistake I can’t remove it; often though, the accidental details become my favourite,” she says of this ambitious, but inevitably rewarding, process.

Lucy combines art deco, psychedelic and childlike motifs to make pieces that are delicate and tender yet engaging and provocative. With Rain People, a hanging structure made from multiple painted wooden elements, she recently branched into sculpture, effortlessly occupying the topical territory between installation and interior design.

Somewhat surprisingly Lucy hails from Birmingham – a city whose vibrant counter-culture is usually more associated with a less subtle blend of fantasy and incitement.

Lucy has exhibited all over the world, from London’s Victoria and Albert Museum to the Eclectic Gallery in London and Tokyo.
