Lucy Garnett

PAST EXHIBIT: October 5 - November 12, 2022
Artist Reception at the Gallery: Thursday, Oct 6, 5pm-7pm

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.

Artist Statement
I am an Anglo-Indian artist and musician living in Seattle. I have been an active member of Seattle Artist League since its establishment in 2016. Using a variety of media ranging from printmaking to video installations, I engage with themes of migration, music, health, and family. I 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.
