Lizzie Farey

Lizzie Farey’s intricate structures capture a still moment, a distillation and order. Calm after a storm.

Intimate forms provide a hint of the process of creation. We can see and even feel points of tension in the work. Our eye can follow the artist’s hand, the choices made in twisting and turning this flexible medium.

Born in Singapore, for the last 30 years Farey has been based in rural Galloway, in Scotland’s South West. The rural setting of home and studio are her guiding inspiration, her sensitivity with wood revealing an interaction with nature that is deeply personal.

Lizzie Farey grows much of her own pallet of artist’s materials. Planting, tending and harvesting a range of willow which is grown for both texture and colour.

Willow, it’s flow of flex and tension is often manipulated into rhythmic patterns, Artist, willow, form, each unique, reach a perfection as the work comes together, inner creative process and final form working as one.

‘My work engages with nature. I focus on recreating the essence of natural form through the medium of willow, larch, ash, hazel and other locally grown woods. Influences from Japan continue to inspire my attempts to capture the simplicity, practicality and beauty of the materials.’
