Lucia Fraser is a multidisciplinary artist based in north London. Primarily a painter Lucia’s ceramic practice has evolved from an exploration into three dimensional form, line and surface. Finding inspiration from the natural world she paints from memory allowing a freedom of form that often journeys into abstraction. Layers of ink and acrylic are built up and then later removed giving her paintings an ethereal, dreamlike quality. In her ceramic work she uses traditional hand building techniques to create functional pieces that evoke a sense of organic movement and fluency of form. Her recognisable mark making transfers from canvas to ceramic in a fluid painterly style.
Lucia studied BA (Hons) Fine Art at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, specialising in painting and sculpture. She is currently a member of the Turning Earth In Production studio in the Lee Valley.
