Lucy Whitford is a sculptor who works with both natural and man-made materials, creating fragile, organic sculptural forms. She seeks out materials for their intrinsic properties and cultural histories, weaving them together to explore the way they resonate with lived experience. Clay is juxtaposed with familiar items from domestic interiors like cane webbing and curtain lining as well as more industrial substances such as steel, wood and cement. Her work hints at the profound subject matter of loss and longing, rooted in an internal narrative and mythology.
