The Netherlands , b.1961
Lucy Sarneel’s distinctive use of fabricated zinc is inspired by the omnipresence of the material in the objects and architecture in her native The Netherlands, and of the tones of the sea and sky there. Graduating from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam in 1989, Sarneel has exhibited in major international solo and group exhibitions since 1991. She has also worked as a teacher and mentor, delivering lectures and workshops internationally since 2002. Lucy is the recipient of numerous awards and her work is held in major public collections including the Cooper Hewitt Museum, NY, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
