Paramount Building, 53-55 Brisbane St, Surry Hills

The ever fabulous Melbourne retailers Mr Kitly and Dagmar Rousset are taking the show on the road to share some lovely wares with Sydneysiders! Unfortunately I won't make the event myself, but some work of mine will be there to represent. I believe there will be champagne involved on Friday night, so get amongst it! For you Melbourne folk, never fear – I will be launching work at Dagmar Rousset in early October, so stay tuned!


You Are The Gardens

Opening night: Saturday 10 August, 4.30–7pm

Stockroom Gallery, 98 Piper St, Kyneton
Show runs from 10 August to 8 September

Lucy James explores the ambiguity of female relationships in You Are The Gardens. Paired women engage in embraces that could actually be loving fights or combative hugs. How do we love and fight, or are these concepts interchangeable? Working with found and imagined imagery James creates a parallel world where people still touch and giant flowers float from the sky. This show coincides with the CraftCubed festival, and will launch alongside Larry Parkinson's Crossing.

Well there is a whole lotta opening going on next week, so come and enjoy the fun! I'm pretty confident I'll be the one clutching the bottle of champagne in the corner, so do come and say hi. I might even share a glass with you.

Happy weekend everyone!

Upcoming exhibition - You Are The Gardens

Good morning and happy Sunday to you all. It's pretty busy in my studio-come-office right now, with manuscripts to edit strewn over flowers and random cut outs. As always, the life-work balance is testing me (has anyone figured out which one art fits into?) and it sure does make it darn exciting.

You Are the Gardens is an exhibition that was created through pure intuition, in a poorly lit room down on the Peninsula. Slightly messy, a little rumpled and more abstract than I've gone in the past, this collection feels very close to my heart (or is it my brain?) and a little further away from my safety net. Ramble ramble. Who cares? Show me the pictures!

I can't keep the frantic madness of it all inside any longer, so I thought I'd share a teaser with you. You Are the Gardens is opening at Stockroom Gallery 10 August from 4.30 pm, and would love to see your shining faces there.
