Lucy Bucknall graduated with a BA (Hons) degree from Bath Academy of Art, UK (1987) and settled in New Zealand in 1998. Her work has appeared in solo exhibitions and collective shows such as Sculpture on the Gulf Waiheke Island and Sculpture On the Shore Auckland.
Bucknall’s bronze sculptures are done in Phosphor bronze. She welds elements together rather than casting the work using a mould, so every piece is a one-off. Her subject matter is always global and political.
She has work in private collections in New Zealand and around the world. Bucknall was selected as a finalist for the Small Sculpture Prize exhibition at Waiheke Island Gallery in 2013. Bucknall also won The McConnell Family Supreme Award for Big Man at Sculpture in the Gardens 2011/12 and has work displayed at Brick Bay Vineyard Matakana and Auckland Botanic Gardens.
