Lucy Andrews


Lucy Andrews makes sculptures and site-specific installations. Her work aims to embody points of tension and collapse between natural and human-made systems. Through combining a wide range of materials she proposes a dynamic materiality which appears to fluctuate between organic and inorganic, liquid and solid, grown and made.
