Lucy Unwin

In Lucy Unwin's work, organic curves emerge from the rock, achieving the natural
arches and spirals of perfectly preserved fossils. These shapes, serving as
archetypal signs of prehistoric life, are also a celebration of the marble itself,
revealing the intricate veins and splits of colour inherent to the stone. In one vein of work, Lucy shows the positive and negative sides of a fossil, the roughness and innate irregularities of the boulder sitting side by side with the painstakingly polished inside. Lucy focuses on these enduring, natural forms, excavating the fossils from the stone, working from the outside in to reveal the subtle layers of time within. In others, her works echo the curves found elsewhere in nature, including the human body.  

Lucy was born in Suffolk and grew up in East Anglia. She studied Fine Art Sculpture at Winchester School of Art before spending time carving in Pietrasanta. Lucy has exhibited in the UK and Sweden and sold work to both public and private collections across Europe, America and the Caribbean. Her work has been exhibited in the Royal Society of Marine Artists Exhibition in 2016. Her studio is in Gloucestershire.
