EXPRESSIVE DEVIANT PHONOLOGY opened on 7th December at Lazarides Gallery and is Lucy McLauchlan’s first London solo exhibition.

It presents a series of new, unseen canvas work alongside a site-specific installation. The collaborative work will involve the participation of musicians whose music will affect the artist’s drawings while her visuals will influence their playing.

Lucy McLauchlan has always had a fascination with the driving forces that generate social networks, our attempts to fit in with one another and the hidden agendas we carry around with us. The artist creates distinctive characters and freeform organic motifs as illustrated above (It Takes 2, 2007). Her confident brush strokes become entangled with intense monochrome imagery, rich in graphic elements. She often paints with little or no preparation and engages her instinctive approach to smother spaces with paint, creating chaotic and seductive environments. Lucy utilises different surfaces to work upon, including canvas, walls, metal, wood, cars and breasts.

The show runs until the 19 January 2008 at the Lazarides Gallery.
