Tag details: Leicester Museum | Siskin (species: Carduelis spinus). Found in Bitteswell, Leicestershire on 3 October 1974. Sex: Male.

Lucy's recent solo exhibition ‘Bird Skins’ at the Lightbox Gallery in Leicester was inspired by Werner’s Nomenclature of Colours, an early colour dictionary outlining colour matches across the natural kingdoms. Stevens was granted access to the natural science collections at New Walk Museum in Leicester to create artworks focusing on the order, variety and beauty of colour in nature.

Her new collection is known for its bold, instinctive mark-making techniques using photography as a starting point and layering with acrylic and house-hold paint, wax pastel, spray paint, Indian ink, graph paper and genuine 24-carat gold leaf.

Lucy Stevens is a British Contemporary artist whose work explores our relationship with the natural environment on a social and cultural level. She draws inspiration from biophilia, natural science collections, taxidermy, colour theory, birdwatching, and birdsong identification. Her projects often include working in collaboration with experts in the natural world including scientists, museum curators, ornithologists, photographers, and musicians. She creates mixed media abstract portraits of birds on paper, and sound works developed from gathering field recordings of the dawn chorus. Her most recent work in collaboration with New Walk Museum in Leicester uses photography as a starting point, which she builds upon using instinctive mark-making layered with vibrant paint, pastel, pencil, spray paint, collage, and gold leaf to reinterpret the natural science collections and to change the narrative around museums, taxidermy, and conservation. Lucy lives and works in Leicester. She received an MA and BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University. Her work has been shown in exhibitions and art fairs across the East Midlands, Yorkshire, East Anglia, and London. She has also taken part in artist residencies in Scotland, Brussels, France, and Sweden.
