“Offerings” brings together Lucy Brown's new and existing works from 2010 – 2017, to Lisburn’s R-Space Gallery, including woven anti-form sculpture and hair works. Some of these have never been shown before and have remained in their studio “limbo state”. R- Space Gallery will become a platform for finalizing the unfinished works as Lucy will continue to work on site inside the gallery until 28th February, 2018.

As the artist says: “I was very keen on getting people to look at the work before it was cut off the loom. For me it was important to see that transformation between the loom and the gallery space.”

There is a marked difference between the work in progress, pinioned and static, born aloft by a rudimentary wooden skeleton, and the dropped fabric, cut from the frame, undulating wave-like, both contained and spilling, hermetic and still reaching out into a wider world. It is from this transformation that the artist further manipulates her material, placing it in a new environment, letting it interact with the other pieces, forming fresh narratives from strange meetings.

“Offerings” is a complex and mutable work and, in situ at the R-Space Gallery, is a rare chance to experience a committed and exciting artist at the centre of her artistic practice.
