lucie smith’s practice seeks to grasp the present whereabouts of her being through critical consideration of her experience of the world. by exploring the expansive realm of art process and medium, she attempts to unite past with present and unconscious with conscious. notions of memory, trace, absence, separation and home are interwoven; alluding to a collective fluidity of the passage of time. autobiographical and sometimes confessional, her practice is rooted within the concealed, allowing a process of analysing the internal to take the lead in obtaining narratives. amongst fascination with the function of site and place within her practice, smith is also driven by the philosophical and psychoanalytical theories that underpin her ideas and practice, often utilising symbolic contexts in order to entwine thought, theory and material.
