Lucy Dyson‘s second solo exhibition “As surprising as life” is now on view at Michael Reid Berlin. Lucy’s intricate handcrafted collages are recognised for their compelling and unique narratives, often underpinned with a light-hearted and colourful sense of humour.
Also a talented animator, Lucy says: “Ever since I was a child I have always made collages, cutting up old encyclopaedias – and family photographs! I never consciously decided on animation or collage; they have always gone hand-in-hand for me. The subversive nature of collage has always appealed to my sense of humour: making new worlds, escapism, being left alone to work out ideas that fail when I try to put them down in words.”
Lucy is a Berlin-based Australian artist, animator and award-winning music-video director. To date, she has directed and produced over fifty music videos for clients including Beyoncé (Formation Tour Visuals), Gotye, Ray LaMontagne, Courtney Barnett, Sarah Blasko, Paul Kelly and many others.
