Lucie Winterson British, b. 1962

LUCIE WINTERSON   is currently completing her PhD: “Navigating nature/human relations in the ecological crisis through art practice”, at the University of the Arts, London.  She has a special focus on immersive encounters and poetic engagement with the natural world as described: “to imagine a space of mutuality where the human and more than human world entangle and express themselves in a myriad of ways including the poetic” 

Winterson’s oeuvre can be considered in the context of the tradition of landscape painting but remains positioned as a uniquely contemporary expression of the natural world.  She lives and works in London and Devon and also works in photography, installation, site specific and video modalities.
