Lucy Tomlins is interested in the metaphors inherent in material and form, and those generated by the juxtaposition of multiple elements within an environment. How, through careful placement can you construct narratives not readily available in the individual components, emphasise a specific viewpoint and/or encourage different ways of looking at the world? Dealing with issues in an abstruse way with a non-prescriptive level of narrative; work is offered to the viewer as an alternative entry point to sociological debate.
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately,
to front only the essential facts of life
and see if I could not learn what it had to teach,
and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Thoreau
Dear Peter, Enclosed is photo of my lovely fox, placed into an area which I`m developing as a small bluebell and white birch woodland. I`m absolutely delighted with the sculpture! Would you please pass a copy on to Tessa (Hayward), with my thanks and very best wishes. Jenny
