Biography / Artist statement
Lucy Ash uses texture and colour to convey meaning. She blends ideas of time, mathematics and rhythm to represent emotional responses to love, death and injustice. Lucy’s practice is to develop series of paintings rather than one off works, enabling an in-depth exploration around specific themes. An active supporter of LGBTQ rights, Lucy exhibited the series ‘Wrong Place, Wrong Time’, in 2011, designed to raise awareness of hate-crimes, following the brutal homophobic attack on Ian Baynham. Her paintings have been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions in the UK, in New York and Amsterdam. Her work Iris 02 has recently been acquired by Southampton City Art Gallery for their permanent collection.
