About

Flatland Projects is delighted to present the first UK institutional exhibition of Lucy Evetts. Evetts (b.1989 lives and works in Kent) graduated from the Royal Academy Schools in 2018. Resisting a settled chain of connection, an agile matrix of images takes hold within Lucy Evett's The Voice Inside My Head. Proud Alsatians, half made-up clowns and portraits of extra-terrestrial figures are just some of the characters brought together in its web of cautious signage, private domestic moments and more public, nocturnal tableaux.

 

Dwelling in a sense of flux, a series of contrasts and juxtapositions populate the gallery. Restful cuddles with pets are in close contact with high-octane fire trucks, blurred night drives and signs alerting to 'road closures', 'wet floors' or 'naked flames.' Igniting this push and pull between safety and danger, an underlying sense of anxiety pulses through this painted cohort. Playing with scale, mimicry and absurdist contradictions, flecks of humour pepper this bed of uneasiness.

 

Switching between interior and exterior spheres, the paintings depict both stock images gathered online by Evetts and more intimate, personal matter. No effort is made to distinguish or categorise these multiple opposing fields, instead a host of divergent moods and pathways emerge. Echoing rapidly evolving trains of thought, the exhibition revels in the unexpected affinities that surface within these paintings.

Gallery opening hours:
12:00 - 16:00 Saturdays and Sundays

The gallery has flat access and accessible toilets.
