Lucy McLauchlan

British born artist Lucy McLauchlan has work held within galleries and museums across the globe. Her large­scale paintings cover multi­storey buildings throughout Europe, gigantic billboards in China, huts of The Gambi, window fronts in Japan, car parks of Detroit, inside the historical London Arts Club, walls outside Moscow’s Red Square, Norwegian lighthouse, Italian water towers, to the depths of abandoned subway tunnels in New York.

Implicit within her work is a deep respect for nature as she draws inspiration from her immediate environment; allowing it to inform and direct what is an intuitive and explorative process.

This Berber Bag is being exhibited as part of this year's Marakesh Biennale and will be ready for shipping on the 20th of May 2016. We thank you for your understanding.
