Luci Eyers in-conversation with Antje Southern
Luci Eyers, Enraged Musician (2018)
Painter Luci Eyers will speak about her varied practice; her sensitivity to paper and watercolour and use of different formats including sequences, scrolls and animation. She works mostly from imagination as well as drawing inspiration from a wide range of imagery including Bruegel and mediaeval manuscripts and illuminations. Eyers is currently working on a collaborative mural project – 15 foot x 12 in watercolour, alongside Timothy Hyman and Perienne Christian.
Luci Eyers studied Painting at the Slade School of Fine Art where she was awarded the Henriques Scholarship. She has exhibited in group shows since the mid-1990s and has had various solo exhibitions. She went on to forge a career in media arts and during this time took part in residencies and performances at the ICA and the Baltic (Newcastle) and received Arts Council funding to commission new work by artists using technology. In 2006 she co-curated a London-wide media arts festival called Node.London. In 2012 she was accepted as one of the first students to join the Turps Studio postgraduate painting programme. She currently lives and paints in London.
