lucie smith’s practice seeks to grasp the 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, 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. through this, she simultaneously explores the gaps and relationships posed between empathy, artefacts, spaces and emotive contexts. smith's practice also divulges an underpinned fascination with the natural world whereby she will often draw upon symbolic meanings, fragments and life cycles of natural matter to materialise concepts.
