This painting is a close reflection on weather-memories. Lydia usually works on a much larger scale, and says that “the smaller scale allows for a more intimate thought".

Lydia Hamblet is a London based artist whose work takes the form of installations, public interventions and large scale prints for both public spaces and galleries. 

Lydia’s practice reflects on shared encounters, spaces and environments, drawing upon personal narratives around the weather. It Takes Two To Box is part of Lydia’s recent ongoing series focussed on encounters in local sports pitches. This body of work questions the role of the spectator through the physical and personal experience of confronting the movement and energy in the landscape.

Drawing is central to the work and is often where the initial research and development happens. Once finally translated through a process of mono-screenprinting, the work contemplates the reliability of memory in relation to the encounter. This openness to translation allows decisions of colour and gesture to be resolved in the process, leading to evocative and atmospheric works on paper.  

A work of this size by Lydia Hamblet would usually sell for £600.
