Statement of Work
For Lucy Poland inspiration comes directly from her materials. She collects fabrics, threads and trimmings with no end project in mind and these then come together and suggest ways in which they should be used.
A concern both for the past and the future expresses itself in the creative repurposing of unwanted cloth.
Lucy’s favourite technique is fabric collage, including the use of furnishing fabrics, vintage linens and knitwear, which are then combined with hand stitch and embellishments. This results in rich textural surfaces on a wide range of 2D and 3D items.
