- "The work of Lucy Williams successfully navigates the contradiction between her subject matter - stark, brutal mid-twentieth-century Modernist architecture - and her medium: intricate mixed media bas-reliefs. In this monograph, artworks are presented alongside period photographs of the architecture, which is often no longer in existence, that provided the inspiration for William's collages. The subject matter is diverse; Williams depicts apartament blocks, swimming pools, and shop fronts that stand modestly unpopulated but yet remain deeply human." -- Back of dust jacket.
