In Rubha nan Sasan, Lucy Barlow brings together a selection of her work, made from observing the smallest details at ground level.

Lucy Barlow presents a selection of drawings and sculptures made from observing the smallest details at ground level; from near the tip of Loch Ewe at Rubha nan Sasan, along the coast, to Camus Mor. Studying lichens, grasses, peat, seaweeds, sand and water Lucy uses this information to consider the topographical nature of dispersal and retention.

​Lucy Barlow FRSA studied at Glasgow School of Art and Middlesex University and is a member of the Scottish Contemporary Art Network and the Society of Scottish Artists. Her recent works addressing climate change were selected for inclusion in the Royal Society of Sculptors Summer Exhibition by Robert and Nicky Wilson/ Artland Jupiter in 2020, and Sigrid Kirk, Curator in 2021. In 2019 Lucy was awarded a residency at Hospitalfield House in Arbroath, and was also a finalist for the 1st Plinth Award from the Royal Society of Sculptors.

For the past twenty years Lucy has walked, photographed and drawn the landscape of Loch Ewe from Inverasdale to Camus Mor. For further information, visit Lucy's website here.
