Lucy Buckley grew up in Churchtown, Co.Cork, Ireland and graduated with a Degree (Hons) in Fine Art in 2011 from Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork City. Her work is part of the OPW (Office of Public Works) and CIT (Cork Institute of Techonology) collections. She is a member of Backwater Artist studios in Cork city and has participated in many group and solo shows both in Ireland and abroad.
The work evokes for me a sense of identity coming out of long memory. Aspects of the past as well as my own family history have been explored and hope to give some fleeting glimpses into the fragmented echoes of a time long gone. Transient landscapes imply the fragility of life and provide an escape from the banal.
Photography plays a big part in the research process, using found images, old family photographs as well as photographs taken in the surrounding urban and rural landscape.
