Lucy Casson

Lucy Casson studied at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts and at the Hereford College of Art. Her small cartoon-like figures have been fascinating an international public since the end of the nineties. The list of commissions the artist has received from public and private collectors is long, and even the Victoria & Albert Museum in London has one of her objects in its possession.

Lucy Casson collects the material for her sculptures on the streets around her stusio in South London; she combines mysterious plastic objects, tin cans or other found object with printed sheet metal, wood and wire. She has translated her precise observations of totally banal everyday moments into her art objects with virtuosity. This results in lively animated scenes: small incidental drama with a wonderfully humorous and authentic understanding of human attributes.
