Lydia Halcrow - Red Marl ii
Red Marl ii (Porlock Bay Painting) 1/3

Lydia makes work in response to walking in a place, collecting objects, visual motifs, snapshots of conversations, local stories. All of these form complex layers in her paintings, drawings and prints, made with pigments created from the soil of each place, often painted as she walks. Her work aims to record her experience, creating her own ‘maps’ of a place, capturing aspects of its identity and hinting at its past.

Lydia has an MFA in Fine Art (Distinction) and is currently working towards a Practice-Based PhD in Fine Art.
