"This British artist constructs meticulous works that pay homage to the utopian visions of modernist architects" Elle Deco "The minute precision is extraordinary: each iron railing, brick and leaf is individually applied and the overall effect is mesmerising" Wallpaper British artist Lucy Williams redefines the concept of collage through her intricate mixed-media bas-reliefs depicting deserted scenes of mid-twentieth-century Modernist architecture.

Her works are a fine balance: both structurally and in the tension between the precision and masculinity of the stark utopian architecture and the painstaking and traditionally feminine domain of craft. Ultimately, Williams' primary interest lies in the interplay of representation that the Modernist source material lends itself to, in descriptions of geometric and modular blocks of material and color. In this title, Williams large-scale pieces are showcased in all their glory, while the intricate, delicate detail is celebrated also.
