Luci Coles Luci Coles -Artist
Luci trained as a sculptor, graduating from Wimbledon School of Art in 2000. Her work demonstrates a unique blend of experimental and traditional techniques, materials and aesthetics; a sense of history in a contemporary object. Her work incorporates a variety of materials from stone and wood carving to assemblages of recycled and reclaimed materials. She creates sculptures and relief paintings using a variety of materials, always incorporating recycled, reclaimed and found elements.
"I am fascinated by traditions and cultures, the objects of worship and our beliefs, by evolution and erosion, by water washed shapes and textures created within rock, by ruins, weathered surfaces and anything fossilised. By the power of nature and the concept of ‘Value’; the life long pursuit of capturing beauty and discovering what is important.
I used to think that there was no point in recreating nature, as nature did a pretty good job on it’s own, but much of my work now revolves around the idea of giving nature a helping hand, depicting nature's reclamation of the world of man. It often contains an environmental theme or uses recycled materials.
Luci latest work combines traditional stone carving techniques -working largely with beer stone salvaged from a demolished church, with found natural and mechanical objects and explores the turbulent relationship between the natural and the man made.
Luci exhibits regularly within Devon and the Southwest and is involved in a number of Artists led inituatives such asTeign Artists and Teignmouth's TRAIL (recycled art in the landscape) and eco artists Incidental Imagery
