Lucy Williams, 1972

British artist Lucy Williams (b. 1972) is known for her intricate mixed-media collages, which depict deserted spaces of Bauhaus Modernist architecture in layers of coloured paper. Williams is fascinated by the dualities between interiors and exteriors, particularly the tension between private and public. Her work emphasizes architectural materials such as Perspex, pointing out the ways that modern construction substances and architectural styles open up the liminalities between public and private. Williams received a B.A. in painting from Glasgow School of Art (1995) and the Royal Academy in London (2003). She lives and works in London.

Lucy Williams has exhibited internationally with solo shows including Beneath a Woollen Sky and Pavilion, both at Timothy Taylor Gallery, London (2007 and 2012 respectively), Festival at McKee Gallery, New York (2014), and most recently with Pools at Berggruen Gallery, San Francisco (2017). Group shows have included Painting the Glass House: Artists Revisit Modern Architecture at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, Connecticut (2008), After curated by Marjolaine Levy at Galerie Mitterand, Paris (2013), Major Contemporary Works at Berggruen Gallery, San Francisco (2019) and Cut and Paste: 400 Years of Collage at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh (2019).
