Lucy Gough

Lucy Gough painted the Etheridge Cow. Lucy Is currently living and working in Cambridgeshire and has been practising as an artist since graduating from Norwich School of Art and Design. She has exhibited widely in the UK and Internationally as well as completing commissions for several institutions including Soho House, University College Hospital London and Central Saint Martins. Lucy’s prints have been selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2012, 2016 and 2018.

Her most recent work draws inspiration from a variety of sources including architecture and geometry. The use of colour, shape and form is a thread that consistently runs throughout her artwork and defines her practise.

Translating Lucy’s trademark geometric artwork onto an undulating three dimensional surface was a challenging prospect. Lucy took inspiration from the geometry of the iconic Mathematical Bridge at Queens’ College and the Cow is named after its designer, William Etheridge. Her chosen design worked with the natural curves of the Cow, almost dictating its own pattern. The use of colour is an integral part of Lucy’s practice and she has chosen a harmonious palette for the sculpture which encourages the eye to move from shape to shape. The playful balance of shape, colour and form combine to create a unique composition.
