Interview with Harry Pye from the Rebel Magazine
Lucy Woollett, also known as Lady Lucy makes paintings, drawings and moving image.

She seeks to find meaning and political application in the process of painting and draws on the art historical lineages of collaborative art practice and portraiture. She told The Rebel magazine that, “Lady Lucy” is a name she started using when she first moved to London in 1996. She was doing performances, fanzines, writing and DJing.
