Speaker Sue Lawty

Lawty’s work is rooted in an emotional, spiritual and physical engagement with the land.

Through repetitive structure and construction she tacitly and meticulously explores material qualities that are inherently given by the material she chooses to work with, quietly drawing the viewer in to observe the subtlest of nuances.In recent years she has become known for making large ‘stone drawings’ from thousands of tiny sea washed rock fragments, creating a kind of pixilated cloth.Sue Lawty’s talk will include a presentation about 240,000 STONES, a seventeen metre long stone drawing commissioned for the main corridor of Scarborough Hospital; and World Beach Project, a global, online, community art project devised in association with the V&A, London
