‘Offerings’ will bring together new and existing works from 2010-2017, including woven anti-form sculpture and hair-works. These works uses a mixed palette of old, unwanted clothing, hair and domestic related textile items as raw materials, and often depart from personal or collective experiences and explores themes around the body, femaleness, re-invention, textile histories and craft-labour. As from the 19th February I will be in residence at R-Space Gallery, installing the exhibition. As part of the exhibition I will be working in the Gallery while open to the public, finalising the installation on 27th and 28th February 2018, drop in and have a chat with me about the work in situ.

I am also delighted to reveal Professor Catherine Harper’s newly written essay titled ‘Lucy Brown: ‘secrets she keeps from herself’ is now available to read on the R-Space Gallery’s Website –

New Publication

My works  ‘the secrets we keep from ourselves’ and ‘Veils’ which were commissioned for ‘Lace Works’ Exhibition at Nottingham Castle Museum 2012-13 are now featured in a new book – ‘LACE HERE NOW’ edited by Amanda Briggs-Goode and  Deborah Dean, published by Black Dog Publishing. The book brings together past, present and future narratives around Nottingham Lace, drawing on ‘Lace: Here: Now’ 2012/13 –

‘Lace: Here: Now’ 2012/13 was a season of lace exhibitions and events that celebrate the heritage of the Nottingham Lace industry and demonstrates that lace still inspires, fascinates and excites.

’Lace Works – Contemporary Art & Nottingham Lace’ took place at Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery, England. 10th November 2012 – 10th February 2013 and was part of Lace: Here; Now.

Works ‘the secrets we keep from ourselves…’ and ‘Veils’ were commissioned by Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery, with funding from the Arts Council England through The National Lottery.
