Marie-Claire Lacey

Marie-Claire LaceyI am a photographic artist from Glasgow, primarily working in analogue with experimental techniques and mixed media. I am fascinated by the way light works and enjoy exploring different ways of manipulating it to create images.

I believe that art should be a synthesis of form and content, so while the aesthetic aspect of expression is of great importance to me, I also try to use art as a way of communicating questions I have about the world we live in, ranging from playful explorations of things like perception and the construction of individual identity to critical investigations of the mechanisms of society. I’m really interested in the ways in which we interact with the world – both with each other and with our surroundings. I have recently completed a Masters in sociology, specialising in the nature of mental health and have since been exploring these themes from an artistic perspective.
