ARTIST and filmmaker Lucy Ash’s new exhibition at Turner Sims features a cycle of works created as a response to the melodies, lyrics and themes of jazz saxophonist Trish Clowes’ latest album, Iris. Echoes is exhibited until Friday 16 March, and coincides with Trish Clowes’ performance at Turner Sims tomorrow (Saturday 27 January).

Lucy Ash is a painter and filmmaker who draws on her life’s experience to express her emotional response to love, death and injustice. Echoes is the visual expression of a rich inner dialogue exploring ideas around mythology, migration, and time – all recurring themes in Lucy’s work. In their vibrancy and colour, her paintings echo and complement the sound world offered by Clowes and her ensemble.

Lucy Ash says: As a lover of jazz as well as crossover concepts, I was pleased to have the opportunity to work with Trish Clowes. The challenge of making her sound visible has been hugely stimulating. I have been able to explore recurring themes we share both around mythology, migration, and time. My work reflects the depth of my connection with her unique approach.

Those interested in the exhibition are welcome to attend an informal Private View on Saturday (27 January) at 6.30pm ahead of Trish Clowes’ performance with her ensemble at 8pm, for which tickets are still available
