Lucy Large studied sculpture at Camberwell College of Art in London, graduating in 2001 with first class honours.
Her work falls into two categories: wire sculpture and hand cut paper, with both embracing the idea of a moment captured or a scene isolated.
The wirework enjoys a sense of theatre, a deliberate staging. The hand cut paper landscapes refer to a sense of solitude, memory, perhaps absence.
The paper designs are all cut by hand using a scalpel and then mounted on small wooden plinths to create a three-dimensional effect. The sculptural pieces are made using fine aluminium mesh and then sewn together using a fine jewellery wire. There is a reference made to small theatre sets and shadow puppetry; a narrative is implied in all the work, but not made explicit.
Lucy lives and works in West Somerset drawing on the local landscape for inspiration for much of her work.
Since resuming a full-time artistic practice in 2010, she has exhibited widely throughout the country including the Battersea Affordable Art Fair in London and the Contemporary Craft Fair in Bovey Tracey, Devon.
