Lucy Garnett

October 5 - November 12, 2022

Lucy Garnett is an Anglo-Indian artist and musician living in Seattle. She has been an active member of Seattle Artist League since its establishment in 2016. Using a variety of media ranging from printmaking to video installations, Garnett engages with themes of migration, music, health, and family. She also explores social issues around outsourced manufacturing, using installations to visualize the invisible labour of exploited garment factory workers and provide opportunities for ethical self-reflection.

Lucy 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. Her multi-layered woodcuts show an appreciation of the landscapes in which she has formed her life: human structures that become part of and blend into their surroundings, natural structures that evoke human edifices, and the resilience and fragility of our lives in those spaces.
