This comprehensive sketchbook page documents a highly original visual journey, with photographic images fractured, cut and reassembled. Drawing inspiration from The First Cut paper art exhibition in Manchester, Lucy's laser cutting experimentation is influenced by the paper cuts of Noriko Ambe and Lucas Simoes, as well as paintings by Mark Posey.
