As part of Lucy Dalzell’s ongoing exploration of London’s evolving landscape, Hidden In Plain Sight brings together her artworks that observe, document and playfully recreate the places and spaces we interact with, but rarely acknowledge.
Hackney Wick served as the catalyst for this ongoing body of work. Whilst living and working in the area in the years leading up to the Olympics, Dalzell started to visually document the hidden, often unnoticed pockets of the Wick, as the area rapidly evolved. This soon expanded into investigating areas going through similar transformations across London.
Hidden In Plain Sight is Dalzell’s debut solo exhibition.
Since graduating in 2006 after studying a BA (Hons) in Design: Illustration at the University of Plymouth, Lucy Dalzell has been living and working in London as a freelance Illustrator. She has two illustrated books published by Cicada Books; Discovering King’s Cross, a pop-up book detailing the recent regeneration of King’s Cross station, and Sunrise to High-Rise, an illustrated wallbook of architecture through the ages (featured in The Guardian’s Top 10 City Books of 2014, and recommended by the Washington Post, Forbes and World Architecture News). She has also produced commissioned artworks for a number of organisations including the The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), The Barbican, London Festival of Architecture, John McAslan + Partners and the Argentine Embassy in London.
