Lucy May Schofield, Selected Prints

9 August - 14 October, 2023

Lucy works in collaboration with expansive landscapes and dark skies, marking seasonal shifts with paper, ink and wood to connect and convene with nature. Observing the way in which time behaves in remote places has resonated in ritualistic acts of making. Meditating on the earth’s rotation, the phases of the moon and our relationship to light and time have inspired performative acts exploring place.

She seeks a dialogue with the temporal and transience nature of our impermanence through paper and print making, interested in belonging and dislocation, remoteness and ritual, separation and intimacy, repetition and remembrance, stillness and light, silence and rhythm, pilgrimage and place.

Lucy May Schofield (1979) is a British artist. After studying at the London College of Printing she spent several years living in Japan, and despite now being based in rural Northumberland, she continues to study wood-block printing with Japanese master craftspeople using traditional and contemporary mokuhanga techniques.

She was recently elected as an Associate member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. Her work has been presented at The Kentler International Drawing Space in New York, Woolwich Contemporary and The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

Her work is held in public and private collections including Tate Britain, The Ashmolean Museum and Yale Centre for British Art.

In 2021 she was awarded a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust award to develop her practice of printmaking. Lucy was awarded the Flourish Award for excellence in printmaking in 2020.
