Lucy Coggle b.1981

Layering up potentially contradictory quotations from our visual vernacular, Lucy Coggle's work havers between indulging and decrying the pleasures of inherited traditions. Boldly stating hierarchies only to dare the viewer to capitulate, the work has an unsettling yet distorted familiarity that refuses to settle into any straightforward declaration of intent.

Lucy Coggle studied english at Oxford university, sculpture at Chelsea School of Art & Design, drawing at The Prince's Drawing School, and is currently completing a post-graduate course at the Royal Academy of Art. She lives and works in London.
