Check out Lucy's work:
Lucy Garnett is an Anglo-Indian artist and musician living in Seattle. Using a variety of media ranging from printmaking to video installations, she explores themes of migration, music, health, globalisation, and family. Garnett’s artwork draws upon her life in the United Kingdom where she grew up, raised two daughters with her husband, and worked as a primary school teacher until she immigrated to the United States in 2012. She has been an active member of Seattle Artist League since its establishment in 2016.
Coming from a musical family, Garnett interprets and analyzes music by visually representing her experience of learning to play particular pieces on oboe and piano. The artist invites viewers into her intellectual and emotional states of mind across auditory and visual genres through the use of pastel, paint, ink, sheet music, and parts of broken instruments. Garnett’s work on personal and communal health includes references to her own spinal condition through printed and drawn images alongside textile and sculptural responses to family lifecycles, concerns about childhood deprivation of play, and her husband’s research on HIV. She also explores social issues around outsourced manufacturing, using installations to visualize the invisible labour of exploited garment factory workers and provides opportunities for ethical self-reflection.
