Lucia Fraser is a multidisciplinary artist specialising in painting and ceramics. Finding inspiration from the natural world she creates work that is gestural and expressive with a distinct colour palette. Although each piece has a starting point, inspired by a distant memory or a place in time, anything is possible within the composition during the process of painting. The works can therefore evolve to become entirely abstract through a deliberate release of conscious control. Evocative in their abstract simplicity, her paintings not meant as direct representations of place, more remembered interpretations of an atmosphere or emotion.
Lucia’s approach to ceramics is heavily influenced by her painting practice. She uses a slab building technique to create ‘flat’ forms that act as three dimensional surfaces for her glazing technique. Her recognisable mark making transfers from canvas to ceramic in a fluid painterly style.
Originating from the north-west of England and having recently relocated to Shropshire, her latest collection of work is inspired by the stunning landscape of the England-Wales borderlands.
