ART EXHIBITION: PERIWINKLE
Inspired by mid-late 20th century decorative arts and interiors, Lucy’s work is signified by an abundant use of colour and pattern, resulting in vibrant painted-textile paintings.
Having recently relocated from London to Falmouth, Lucy’s subject matter takes full advantage of her outdoor lifestyle, and regularly includes foraged motifs from coastal walks.
Seaweeds, shells, flora and nautical symbols are primary sources of inspiration. Painting influences range from Matisse, the Bloomsbury Group and Bonnard, to Ken Done, Svenskt Tenn and Marimekko.
Lucy will also be running a foraged shell and seaweed painting workshop ‘Shell Seekers Painting Workshop’ from 5.30pm to 8pm on 13 August, where attendees can turn their foraged shells, seaweed and sea glass into a framed, pattern-led painting, ready to take home.
No painting experience necessary, all levels welcome. All materials and refreshments will be provided, attendees just need to bring their foraged shells and seaweed.
To book a place on the workshop (£20pp) or for more information about Lucy’s work and her exhibition, visit www.lucyinneswilliams.com.
