Lucy Unwin studied Fine Art Sculpture at Winchester School of Art where she developed her practice. Lucy's work is heavily influenced by natural forms, organic shapes and the human figure.
Lucy works with both steel, concrete and stone. while working with steel and concrete Lucy like to portray the physical power of the material, pushing it to its extremes levels of exertion and flexibility, sometimes representing her own experiences within sport. When working with stone, Lucy Unwin uses the natural shape of the material for guidance before releasing the form within. The physical process of working, which is often very demanding is important to her, as by combining physical and mental energy, she is able to create the desired outcome.
While discussing her work lucy sated:
“My latest designs see the amalgamation of natural forms such as eroded seashells and fossils, combined with the subtle curves and lines of the human body. Often plant like in their structure these organic shapes represent the ever-present influences of our natural environment on the human body, be it both physical and emotional.”
