Lucy Stein

Wise Children

A limited edition of sixteen hand-painted ceramic tiles, each unique and produced on the occasion of Lucy Stein’s solo exhibition Wet Room at Spike Island (25 September 2021 to 16 January 2022).

Inspired by the fougou: narrow Neolithic underground passages unique to West Cornwall, Stein’s exhibition centres around an installation with a bathtub and sink with running taps, surrounded by tiled walls that have been hand-painted with scenes relating to the artist’s study of western esoteric traditions.

Titled after the last novel written by Angela Carter, Wise Children, Stein’s edition features some of the imagery from Wet Room; a mixture of Greek mythology, esoteric culture, ecclesiastical and medieval tableaus often depicting a wide range of western female archetypes.
