Lucy McLaughlan is a favorite artist of mine and has an exhibition on at the moment at Lazarides in London – wish I could make it.
She has great fluid lines that seem like they could go on forever. The style of her work is so distingtive, her earlier stuff was suggestive of the 70’s Op art scene but most of this new stuff seems to go well and beyond that into something new. For one, she has moved on from the monchromatic into warmer, earthier browns. But really the big leaps are in how she moves beyond the confines of a 4 borders s you can see from this awesome TACIT video below:
Her prices have been increasing slowly, but I think she’s held back by being grouped with other graffiti artists where she doesnt have the on-street portfolio to give her that street cred factor.
Her Together… exhibition is on from the 2 July to the 12th of August at 11 Rathbone Place w1t 1hr.
