INFO







Hello,  my name is Lacy Barry and I'm a multi-faceted paper artist & designer. I create vibrant sculptures reminiscent of the fluid and geometric forms and saturated colors found in natural & architectural worlds.

Born in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta in the Canadian wilderness, I have always been inspired by the natural and cultural wonders of my childhood home, approaching these aspects with preternatural cognition. From brightly hued Northern Lights to the colourful ceremony dress of the local First Nations Tribe, these memories have always made their way into my artwork.

I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t curious and enthralled by channeling my imaginative inner world into my art. I began my art practice at the age of seven as a contemporary dancer, performing professionally across North America. As a young adult, I apprenticed to my sign-painter father on western film sets. This work re-woke my childhood love of drawing and painting. I later moved into costume design, fashion, set building and prop styling.

I used my background in the arts to ‘literally’ craft my own, unique, visual language and have applied this to public art installations, interiors, ad campaigns, music videos, editorials, even a tablet game. My artwork is meticulously crafted and executed, pairing imaginative wonder and practical skill. I work mainly, but not exclusively, with paper and recycled cardboard. I utilize various folding, constructive and airbrush techniques to breathe life into flat materials. On occasion I also add glitter, foil, miniatures, graphics and props to enhance the narratives in my work.

I have exhibited internationally.  My shows include:
Bottle Neck Gallery, New York, 2013
Joseph Gross Gallery, New York, 2014
ArtLeadHer, Los Angeles,2015
Art on Paper, NY, 2016
the WoMA, Berlin, 2018
Venice Design, Venice, Italy, 2019.

In 2020 I began an illustrative & storytelling podcast entitled Secret Place Berlin. Living and working internationally, I reside in Berlin, Germany.
