Victoria Lucas is a Sheffield based artist who works at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston as a Fine Art lecturer. She graduated from a Fine Art Sculpture Degree in 2004 from Norwich University of the Arts, and in 2007 she was awarded a MFA Fine Art Degree from the University of Leeds. Her artwork has been exhibited internationally, including a recent solo show at Grizzly Grizzly in Philadelphia, and group shows at Casa Maauad in Mexico City and Bolsky Gallery in Los Angeles. She also co-ordinates Hanover Project, a contemporary art gallery in Preston.
Lucas’ works can be described as a series of considered and poetic interactions with objects and places. Focusing on urban public spaces that frame the everyday, works punctuate the ordinary so that relatively minor happenings are revealed as monumental events.
