Lucy Cade is a painter who makes work about the matrixial realm – the feminine and motherhood. Pictorially, her work has strong currents of painterly cinematic imagery, but physically, can manifest as installation or sculpture. She has shown extensively in the UK in the last few years. She was shortlisted for Jackson’s Painting Prize 2022 and the Alpine Fellowship 2021. Following the Turps Correspondence Course, she is now undertaking her MFA at City & Guilds of London Art School. She lives and works between London and Rutland, UK.
Lucy recently secured Arts Council funding to explore her own experience of postnatal psychosis through painting. She was shortlisted for The Alpine Fellowship Visual Arts Prize in 2021 and was a semi-finalist in the ‘Big Art Challenge’ on Channel Five. She is currently studying on the Turps Correspondence Course and is due to start her MA in Painting at Camberwell College in September 2022.
