WHITE LINEN FLOATING IN SUNLIGHT. ROCK N' ROLL IN MY SOUL. WILD GRASSES BLOWING IN THE WIND. BURNING BRIGHT FLAMES. ROLLING CLOUDS AND ELECTRIC THUNDERSTORMS. THE SWEET SPOT ON THE DANCE FLOOR. RAIN FALLING ON COBBLED BACK STREETS. ERUPTIVE LAUGHTER AMONGST FRIENDS. MOVING IMAGE. MEMORY. SEA SALT AND FERN. LUCID DREAMS UNFURL.
LUCY SCOTT MA
I was born in Suffolk, UK and grew up exploring the fields and footpaths surrounding Lavenham.
At the age of 21 I moved to Australia. For the next decade I explored deserts, rainforests oceans and cities. I worked with Aboriginal artists in remote locations, ran numerous community arts projects, went on tour with bands as their tour photographer, performed with the circus, worked on arts and music festivals, produced plays and held solo and group exhibitions. Eventually, I started craving the seasonal changes, bird song and the golden fields of Suffolk. I returned home. I have now been back for nearly five years and when not in the studio I can be found exploring the fields I love and know so well.
I am a mixed media artist that explores philosophical enquiry and the human condition. My art is my constant as I explore and honour all the intricate parts of myself.
I am a conduit for inspiration to channel. Meditative techniques of repetitive actions and mark making enable me to drop into the flow state, exploring the nuance between repetition loosing and amplifying meaning. I aim to break free from the cognitive mind, communing with my visceral reaction moment to moment. My choice of medium and tool is a collaboration with which I engage a conversation as I investigate form, composition, narrative and liminality. My hands are full of dynamic passion and revel in the process of making. I am fascinated with the language of gestural communication, using it to express my inner emotional landscape. I restrict my colour palette as I find the boundaries useful. I dance and play with a process often embracing the 'mistakes' and incorporate multiple layers within one piece.
