Lucy Turnbull studied at Adelaide Central School of Art and graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Art, Honours in 2010. Recent exhibitions include 'Portraits' at ACSA and 'Wonder Fall' at Hill Smith Gallery.
Lucy has held four solo exhibitions and participated in a number of group exhibitions in Adelaide and Sydney.
My brothers have been a major focus of my artistic practice. Previously they appeared as sculptures or painted figures, tender portraits of human relationships.
This work marks a shift from the figure to the “moving life”, a portrait of a room that evolves as the space gets lived in, moved around, and occupied. The haphazard placement of objects and clothing strewn about the room provides a busy still life to capture in marks and measurements.
As the light changes through the day, and the week gives into the weekend, this panoramic view of connected floor boards, offcuts from the newly laid floor of the room, click and slide into view.
Lucy has received two Professional and Development Grants from South Australian Youth Arts Board and a grant from Helpmann Academy.
In 2007 she was awarded the Cibo Emerging Artist Prize and the Ed Tweddel Studio Prize 2006.
