Event Description

Julia Lucey revers nature. With arches and a pre-raphaelite attention to detail in this body of work, Lucey presents nature as sacred. Her process of collaging aquatint etchings allows each plant or animal to be meticulously depicted and elevated to the symbolic. She has taken inspiration from fables and woven them into what otherwise could be seen as solely scientific native plant etchings, emphasizing the wonder embedded in the natural.

A resident of Fairfax, California, Julia Lucey got her BFA in printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute and the inspiration for her art from her years spent backpacking and working in the Western United States. As an Artist-in-Residence at Kala Art Institute, Julia has focused on traditional etching techniques and aquatint to create images dealing with the evolving issues of wildlife, its dissolution, and the attempt by many to direct its path. She has exhibited her work throughout the United States.
