Lucy Turnbull

Artist

Lucy Turnbull studied at Adelaide Central School of Art and graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Art, Honours in 2010. She has been painting tender portraits of her brothers for a number of years. The artworks document a journey from youth to adulthood, and the process of self-awareness and understanding.

"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, click and slide into view."
