Lucy Cade


Informed by her background in Classics, Lucy Cade’s paintings present females as avatars of particular emotions, set in imagined landscapes. Current work includes an Arts Council funded project to explore her own postnatal psychosis; and a collaboration with sound artist Eleanor Turner about modern and traditional notions of motherhood. As well as themes such as identity and adolescence, she articulates the anguish and elation of psychotic states, touching on the political status of (female) psychiatric patients, attended by self-seeking or indifferent caregivers in a patriarchal healthcare system. 


Lucy was shortlisted for the Jackson’s Painting Prize 2022 and The Alpine Fellowship 2021. She is on the Turps Correspondence Course (2021-22) and will begin her MA Fine Art: Painting at Camberwell in September 2022.
