Lucy Ribeiro

Location: London, South East

My work explores memory, mark making, and repetition. To investigate forms, and hidden repetition taken from everyday ephemera, and from this I have built a body of work revealing these forms from my everyday encounters with the environment.

Recent works are influenced by the Japanese tradition of printmaking after spending time travelling around Japan, from Tokyo, Kyoto, Miyajima, Osaka, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki. I spent time with woodblock print makers, and used details from prints housed in the National Museum of Tokyo in her work, as well as observations of objects seen and collected on my travels through Japan.

Each of my pieces are cut by hand using handmade paper and Japanese cutting tools.

Ribeiro was born in Monmouth, UK, and has exhibited widely in London. She works as an artist educator for galleries such as the Royal Academy and Victoria & Albert Museum, and her work can be found in private collections in the UK, Europe, and Japan.
