lucie smith is a multidisciplinary artist based in south west england, working mainly in installation, sculpture, assemblage, photography, film and creative writing. she also works with printmaking, stitch, sound and process-led drawing and painting.

 

smith’s practice seeks to grasp the present whereabouts of her being through process and research led interrogation. by exploring the expansive realm of art process and medium, she attempts to unite past with present and unconscious with conscious. notions of memory, trace, absence, preservation, dereliction and the archival are interwoven; alluding to a collective fluidity of the passage of time.

autobiographical and sometimes confessional, smith's practice is rooted within the concealed, allowing a process of analysing the internal to take the lead in obtaining narratives. amongst fascination with the function of site, place and 'the object' within her practice, smith is also driven by the theories and symbolic contexts that underpin her ideas.
