Undulating: Lucy Wayman
8 - 22 October 2017
Studio Pavilion at House for an Art Lover
Open Daily 11am - 4pm
Wayman’s work revolves around material constraints, contrasts, and forms. She is interested in playing with opposing preconceptions of objects and their functions, especially in relation to the human body. By bringing the familiar into an unfamiliar setting and configuration, she aims to create both unsettling and immersive experiences for the viewer.
Through inherited craft techniques, such as weaving, knotting and macramé, Wayman creates an emotive tension amongst the forms she produces. The taut shapes created by weighting and knotting heightens the physical relief when the piece hits the floor in a sensuous slump. This in turn creates a contrast between the rational repetition and the emotional release.It is a tension between order and chaos, between cerebral and corporeal functions, between restraint and lust.
