Julia Lucey: Menagerie

Julia Lucey: Menagerie . January 7-29, 2023

Wally Workman Gallery is proud to present a solo show with printmaker Julia Lucey. Lucey precisely cuts and layers her intricate aquatint etchings onto panel, creating a visually dense narrative. This new series expands her menagerie, exploring ideas of migration and invasive species amongst the plants and animals native to her home state of California. In a playful manner, Lucey’s work examines how the natural world coexists: predator vs prey, native vs invasive.
