Lucy Smith

I am an experimental printmaker working with tactile natural materials and alternative processes. I frequently work with leather as the inked surface, often re-using well-worn objects that have come to the end of their useful life, such as the family sofa, or a pair of my son’s school shoes. Leather monoprints are either developed in their own right, re-purposed as negatives for cyanotype photographic contact printing, or combined with cyanotype to make mixed media prints. I have been described as “a low-tech techie”. I work with my hands, exploring the possibilities of process, allowing themes to emerge along the way without over-analysing them. I graduated from Central St Martins and love to play.
