Gemma Lacey

Gemma Lacey's work in artists' books is concerned with the body, its environment and the contrasting ephemeral and insistent qualities of these entities. The books attempt to physically manifest the feelings inherent in these tensions. Recent works consider and document the loss of an adult education art team, make palpable the sense of longing in a domestic setting and celebrate the pioneering spirit explored in a contained space on an allotment plot.
