Lucy Ash’s exhibition at Turner Sims featured a cycle of works created as a response to the melodies, lyrics and themes of Trish Clowes’ album 'My Iris'.
Echoes is the visual expression of a rich inner dialogue exploring ideas around mythology, migration, and time – all recurring themes in Lucy’s work. In their vibrancy and colour, her paintings echo and complement the sound world offered by Clowes and her ensemble.
'As a lover of jazz as well as crossover concepts, I was pleased to have the opportunity to work with Trish Clowes. The challenge of making her sound visible has been hugely stimulating. I have been able to explore recurring themes we share both around mythology, migration, and time. My work reflects the depth of my connection with her unique approach.'
