Now, Lachlan has a new solo show, also inspired by the city, which once again showcases her talent for highly detailed, intricate perspectives on cityscapes.
Lachlan works across printmaking, etching, drawing and building – her style often owing as much to architectural drawing as illustration.
The show, entitled Plan, opens this week, and will be exhibiting works from her large-scale ‘The Envisageable Cities’ series together for the first time, alongside new works created exclusively for the exhibition.
These new works were created in response to the Golden Lane Estate, a council hosing complex built in the 1950s, which is also home to the gallery. The site was conceived as a model for social integration: created in the wake of the destruction caused by the World War II bombings, it stood as a symbol of post-war recovery.
Lachlan will also be holding a free drawing class on 21 July, which anybody can attend.
Plan, Leonie Lachlan, runs from 5 – 31 July at Exhibit, 20 Goswell Road EC1M
