Lucy Williams by Lucy Williams
British artist Lucy Williams redefines the concept of collage through her intricate mixed-media bas-reliefs depicting deserted scenes of mid-twentieth-century Modernist architecture. Her works are a balance: both structurally and in the tension between the precision and masculinity of the stark utopian architecture and the painstaking and traditionally feminine domain of craft. Ultimately, Williams primary interest lies in the interplay of representation that the Modernist source material lends itself to, in descriptions of geometric and modular blocks of material and colour. In this title, Williams large-scale pieces are showcased in all their glory, while the intricate, delicate detail is celebrated also.
