    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
    preserved. 

    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.
