Lucy Austin inspired a lively informal discussion on Saturday in the gallery. Talking in depth about her ongoing series of watercolours, ‘Tender Machines’ that she felt compelled to create.
The powerful emotional and intellectual nuances of the subject, choice of colour and materials were explored. Each piece is made spontaneously, drawn with a brush with no adjustments or re-working and each has a different character.
The gallery installation consists of a selection of 45 pieces, carefully arranged in a loose grid with alternate white and coloured backgrounds.
