Artist Statement & Bio
This work looks at how architecture and certain spaces can hold you and remain in
your memory, certain locations can leave an indelible mark.
Memories are stored and conserved, ordered and inscribed in spaces and through
my work I try to access memories that I had thought forgotten, to build fragments that
can only be approximations, partial and inaccurate. As representations of the
vanished whole they must be accounted failures and yet I hope to find within the
gaps, faithful maps and accurate scale models of broken memories, orderly and
Lily Cummins works within drawing using spatial experiences and memory as a trigger.
She graduated with a Masters of Fine Arts from the National Art School in 2017, and has had three
solo exhibitions and been included in many group shows both in Australia and overseas.
In 2018 she won the Wingecarribee Drawing prize and travelled to Leipzig, Germany, to join the
Pilotenkueche International Art Program for a residency in an abandoned perfume factory. Her
work responds to architecture – harnessing its textures, energy, sound, light and floorplans as
mediums in their own right.
