Lucy Williams

Lucy Williams’ work is very specific. She produces collages (which she calls “reliefs”) inspired by modern architecture – building profiles as well as some interior spaces. Some of these give, possibly deliberately, the impression of architects’ concept drawings, but the inclusion of more realistic environments – sparse, but believable – adds a sense of serenity that is at odds with the often Brutalist nature of her subject. Where the concept drawing would include people to give a token sense of scale and humanity, they are completely missing from Williams’ pieces and this somehow seems give a greater sense of their place in a real world than does the technical vision. There is no doubt that they are works of art and not mere representations of form.

In this surprisingly mesmerising book, the works are placed alongside period photographs of buildings, some of which no longer exist, that inspired the works illustrated.
