Lucy Tolan is an artist based in Naarm (Melbourne). She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at RMIT in 2018 specialising in ceramics.
Lucy wants her work to occupy the space where architecture and landscape meet. With repetitive patterns and bold colour, her objects are informed by modernist architecture and have textile like qualities, combining soft and hard. She is concerned with juxtaposing form and texture to create both tension and harmony.
Lucy hand builds her work using a combination of pinch and slab building techniques. She collects and creates repetitive textures using natural and self-made objects.
