About the Tutor

Lucy May Schofield studied BA Print Media at London College of Printing before being awarded a two year Arts Council funded residency at Manchester School of Art. In 2015 Schofield was joint recipient of a grant from the British Council to exhibit a collaborative work at the IMPACT 9 Printmaking Conference. She has undertaken artist residencies in Japan, Iceland, California, Scotland and is currently based in rural Northumbria as part of a year long artist residency programme with VARC (Visual Arts in Rural Communities). Schofield’s work has been recently exhibited at The Manchester Contemporary, Art Toronto and The London Art Fair.

Drawn to isolated places and spaces that are at once remote or time extending, Schofield is interested in exploring how spaces impact on our sense of dislocation or belonging. Her practice explores language, impermanence, vulnerability and belonging in terms of the cultural narratives we inhabit.
