An Evening of Mokuhanga with Lucy May Schofield
Tues 9 March 7pm 
£5 to attend online

In 2016 Lucy May Schofield began her term as VARC (Visual Arts in Rural Communities) resident artist at Tarset, one of Northumberland's more remote locations and she remains based at the parish to this day.

Lucy describes her work as a 'collaboration with the expansive landscape and dark skies of Northumberland.'

Join us for a virtual studio visit where you can find out how Lucy makes her prints and learn how her rural location informs her creative process. There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the event.

About the artist

I mark the seasonal shifts with paper, ink, wood and silk to connect and convene with nature. Observing the way in which time behaves in remote and rural 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 inspire performative acts in the landscape documented through printmaking, video, stitch and installation. In turning our attention to the temporal, the work seeks to commune with nature and our relationship to transience and impermanence. I am interested in belonging and dislocation, remoteness and ritual, separation and intimacy, time and impermanence, isolation and migration, repetition and remembrance, stillness and light, silence and rhythm, pilgrimage and place.

Lucy graduated from London College of Printing in 2002 before being awarded a two-year funded residency at Manchester School of Art, where she also worked as an Associate Lecturer until 2010.
In 2011 Lucy relocated to Japan, where her interest in printmaking developed. As joint recipient of a British Council International development award in 2015, she initiated a collaborative project at IMPACT 9 Printmaking Conference in China. The project travelled to Southern Graphics Conference International (SGCI) in Portland, USA in 2016. Later that year she was awarded a one-year residency with VARC (Visual Artists in Rural Communities) in Tarset, Northumberland where she is still based. In addition to creating her own work Lucy currently leads printmaking and book arts workshops around the UK.

The money from tickets sold for this event will go towards helping keep Northern Print operating in this challenging time. We look forward to virtually seeing you.
