Georgina Fay and Lucy Warren – England

Georgina Fay studied at the University of Edinburgh, University of Creative Arts, Surrey and the Institute of Education, London completing her MA in Gallery and Museum Education.

Georgie Fay is an artist based in London, UK. Her practice is primarily print based and often inspired by her noteworthy career as an Arts Educator. At the core of her artistic vision is a search for place and connections, in landscape and history. She explores critical themes like the mounting tensions between humankind and nature, and the importance of memory and place. Her work captures a visceral energy and stitches together the sometimes ephemeral. Fay’s areas of investigation derive from her personal experiences whether that be the mundane city pavements, migrating flight patterns or journeys undertaken; she engages in the everyday.

Within the structural framework of traditional printing techniques, she expresses these narratives. Fay utilises photography, digital imagery and found materials in the production of her etchings and monoprints. She layers imagery with drawing and mark making to create contrived landscapes, in which the viewer can find personal connections. Her most recent body of work looks at how humankind has interacted and changed landscape. She specifically analyses our use of the elements throughout time from Neolithic farming to power stations that dot our horizons today.

Her own art practice is both installation and print based, it researches the theme of ‘Loss of Imagination’, ‘Finding Home’ and ‘Mapping our world’ and particularly explores this in relation to den and shelter building. She continues her printmaking practice at the Working Men’s College, Camden and has exhibited her den based installations in her degree show and various festivals around the UK.  

Lucy is an artist, musician and creative facilitator who lives and works in London.

Lucy’s practice focuses on place, with a particular interest in exploring how sound can offer an alternative way of understanding our environments. Works combine field recording, composed sound, installation and sculpture to reflect environments, individual and collective social histories, and people’s relationship with particular places. Works are often developed through dialogue and exchange with local communities, and Lucy particularly relishes opportunities that enable her to spend time in rural communities in order to make new work in response to the environment.

As a creative facilitator Lucy delivers and manages participatory projects and workshops with children, young people, and elders in a variety of contexts and settings.  Amongst others this currently includes with Resonate Arts – a programme of arts projects and interventions with people living with dementia, and with the October Gallery – collaborating with artists Georgie Fay and Becky Snow on projects with local schools.
