Art, Process, Thoughts

Artists Statement and Deviantart

My Artist’s statement on my website:

“Hello I am Lucy Barfoot, I have a degree in Fine Art and it feels good. I live in Bristol and have done since graduating in 2008 with a Fine Art degree from the University of Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey

I create a large variety of work, but my love is within sculpture-installation. I enjoy making stuff from ready-made stuff; apples, syrup, lists, petals. I like to make tiny sculptures, sew little lines onto paper, make ink + PVA molds, and blind draw.

The word ‘quirky’ is often used to describe my art – I’m not sure if I like that or not, but it fits. I combine process-led, repetitive actions with a satisfying, sensual aesthetic. I’m greatly attracted to objects, I feel a compulsion for things, and I listen to my intuition – this is my starting point.

My work is mostly ephemeral and I like to mix the natural with the man-made.”

I used to spend a lot of time on DeviantART, an online community for artists which provides a place for any artist to exhibit and discuss works. I used to upload all my art to there, since i was young till the first year of uni, and my gallery has culminated over 13,000 page-views. I’m heavily mentioning my website on there, so that the followers of my work can have a look, because for 13,000 people to see my current work would be really exciting. Anyway, My deviantart thingy is HERE if you want to have a look.
