Lucy Scott is an artist whose work is rooted in a curiosity for the space between the lines. Her work is in correspondence with the unspoken, often investigating the point of transmission between 'source' and creation. She applies a minimal aesthetic that allows space for the tender and subtle to be interpreted. Repetitive ritual actions and mark-making enable her to access the flow state while she explores the nuance between repetition losing and amplifying meaning.

 

Lucy was born in Suffolk, England, to an English antique dealer and an Australian cowboy. For the first five years of her life, they travelled the world, living in Australia, America, and Italy. Returning to England for schooling, the art room was her place of solitude and freedom. At sixteen, Lucy attended an arts college, studying media studies, photography, art history, film, and textiles.

 

At the age of nineteen, Lucy returned to Australia. Over the next ten years, she worked in remote aboriginal communities, running playgroups and artist studios. She curated and worked on arts, culture, and music festivals and worked for community arts organisations and art galleries. Later, she performed and went on tour with musicians as their tour photographer. All the while, Lucy created and exhibited multiple bodies of her work. She studied various artistic practices, such as sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, weaving and photography, while being mentored by working professionals in the field.

At twenty-nine, Lucy returned to the UK, studying a masters in illustration and book arts at The Cambridge School of Art, which she achieved with distinction honours.

 

Lucy is currently based in the mediaeval village of Lavenham, Suffolk, UK, where she creates in her home-built studio. She exhibits her work, sells online and at art markets.
