Lucia Wallace

Artist member since 2019
Toronto, Ontario

Lucia Wallace is queer Toronto based artist and recent graduate of OCAD University (2018). She has exhibited and studied in Toronto, Canada and Florence, Italy. She uses sewing, embroidery, and knitting as alternative modes of painting; using traditional craft materials to challenge the artificial hierarchy of mediums. She explores her identity, memories and storytelling through graphic, geometric patterns derived from black out poetry. Her work also explores translating digital media into analogue, digitally creating works of glitch art that then inspire the compositions and colours of knit works. She aims to combine and contrast the meditative processes of writing, drawing, knitting, and coding.

Why is it important for people to have art in their home or life?

Having art you love at home brings warmth, love, and inspiration to your life. I think we are curious, and having art in our homes helps us to be inquisitive every day.

When did you start making art, and why?

I've been making art as long as I can remember. Making art is essential to my emotional and mental wellbeing. I believe that I can make an impact on the world through art by using it as a tool to connect with others.
