Lucy May Schofield
"Lucy is visual artist working in collaboration with expansive landscapes and dark skies. She charts the seasonal shifts through performative interplays and expanded print. These take place during the yearly solstices and equinoxes. Her residencies in remote places have offered opportunities to observe the ways in which time behaves. Reflecting on our place in the cosmos and the phases of the moon have inspired a dialogue with the temporal and transient nature of our impermanence. A graduate of London College of Printing she was awarded a one-year residency with Visual Arts in Rural Communities in rural Northumberland, where she is still currently based. She has attended many residencies in Japan, Italy, Iceland and the US. Lucy was elected as an Associate member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. Her work has been presented at The Kentler International Drawing Space, New York, 3331 Arts Chiyoda Tokyo and The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition London. Her work is held in public and private collections including Tate Britain, The Ashmolean Museum and Yale Centre for British Art. In 2021 she was awarded a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust grant to develop her practice and was the winner of the Flourish Award for excellence in printmaking in 2020. She is a member of the Mokuhanga Sisters collective, an international collaborative group formed of nine artists across four continents, exploring contemporary mokuhanga techniques and exhibiting together globally.
