(both laughing)

Artist duo Emily Lucas and Nick Grellier’s (both laughing) collaborative work is grounded in drawing practice and rich research that explores, discovers, invents, solves problems and cracks jokes.  They make artwork using low value, low fi materials and objects from around the home, including baby wipes, stencils, felt tip pens and printing stamps, in order to tackle the problem of emotion versus seriousness and other hierarchies both in the art world and wider society. Their remit is to generate new ways to talk, write and think about drawing and other art practices. The work is both playful and serious, celebrating difficulties and achievements.  Together, they have begun to develop their own manifesto for drawing as a way to embrace mistakes, test out new ideas and acknowledge non-binary viewpoints and grey areas, giving value to the overlooked.
