New Artist in Residence at Rabley Drawing Centre

Lucy Farley in the studio at Rabley Drawing CentreLucy Farley in the studio at Rabley Drawing CentreMeryl Ainslie, Director of Rabley Drawing Centre has just announced that the Artist in Residence for 2020 will be Lucy Farley MA RCA.  Lucy trained at the Royal College of Art 2007-2009 will be making the most of the space and studios at Rabley, looking to inspire others along the way during her four visits to Rabley across the year.

 

Lucy Farley is a painter and printmaker, researching the places she visits and the stories that underpin and inspire her work.  She has a Danish mother and English father, and recalls the dark and spooky Nordic tales her Grandmother told her as a child.  And here her story starts…

 

Collage by Lucy FarleyCollage by Lucy Farley“I didn’t know about the Savernake Forest before I came here." commented Lucy.  "There was a random connection from an Australian friend who told me about the stories and legends of the Forest.  So I started to draw from these ideas about the ‘headless horse woman’ of the forest.  I made lithographs at London Print Studio, printed onto Japanese paper and  working with a horse shape.  These are some of the collaged elements I have been using in the print studio at Rabley."

 

Adding:  "There is an eye in the oak in the forest called the king of limbs’ - this motif has also inhabited the images this week.  Back in my London studio I will be editing and making  more research and reading and readying for my next exciting visit.

Being in the Rabley studio there is a connection to landscape.  I can see the edge of the Savernake Forest out of the window. It’s a stark contrast to my London Studio and a breathing space, calming and vast. It is so quiet - I can mull the questions without interruption.” 

 

Lucy's progress at Rabley can be followed on the Rabley Drawing Centre Blog, and information about Rabley can be accessed here.
