Lucy Lutyens

My work continues to be influenced by shapes in the rural world around me, which increasingly turn into birdlike or botanical shapes, but recently have been a reflection on the ever shifting role of women as families mature and fly free. Living as we do on a family farm, my more recent work is inspired by family dynamics and the ebb and flow of generations. As the elderly generation fade so the young pick up the baton and continue onwards – an affirmation of life.

I continue to work in direct resin as a robust material that works well for much of my work – firstly for its strength but also for its durability to life outdoors as many of my pieces work well both indoors and out, and although they are intended to be cast in bronze, resin is an honest substitute.

Bridget McCrum is a contemporary sculptor whose work is an enormous inspiration to me, and originally Barbara Hepworth whose work persistently inspires.

Biography
After an early career as a specialist furniture painter I trained at Colchester School of Art. I then continued to learn sculptural techniques with sculptor Miles Robinson in Suffolk. I live and work on an organic farm near Colchester and find inspiration in the history of this medieval settlement. The surrounding landscape, found objects and the cyclical continuity and balance of nature have moulded my creativity for thirty years and are key sources of inspiration, influencing the flowing sculptures which evolve into birdlike or botanical forms reduced to simpler, abstracted ideas.
