Paradox Outside Work

Lucy McLauchlan

Known internationally, McLauchlan’s monochromatic large-scale paintings are at home within galleries and museums just as they are covering multi-story buildings across Europe, gigantic billboards in China, huts of the Gambia, Italian water towers, a Norwegian lighthouse, car parks of Detroit, to the depths of abandoned subway tunnels in New York. And many places in between.

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.


 Paradox Inside work: there are voices to be heard

For Paradox Inside, British born McLauchlan has explored gesture and line as they change and alter the space at different scales. Responding directly to the environment she has taken over the walls with an improvised flow of brush marks.
