Lucy Crouch and Matthew Vaughan: Tracing Matter
- Date: Friday 1 September 2023
- Location: Off-campus
- Interval: Every day
- Until: Sunday 24 September 2023
- Cost: Free
This exhibition at GLOAM Gallery in Sheffield showcases work by practice-led Postgraduate Researcher Lucy Crouch and MA Fine Art alumnus Matthew Vaughan.
Their current research focuses on the qualities of charcoal, pulling out the resonant sounds through and within charcoal and producing prints using charcoal as print medium. The charcoal is made from waste pieces of oak timber, originating from French forests.
Crouch and Vaughan both consider every aspect of the charcoal’s history and material transformations as mutable matter important. They are interested in the potential of the charcoal as a resonant object and, for Crouch in particular, the question of the concept of drawing — recognising drawing through and within material in its unfolding.
Curated by GLOAM Co-director Stu Burke.
This project is supported by Sheffield City Council.
See the GLOAM Gallery website for full details.
