Bridgeman Editions is a new initiative from Bridgeman Images presenting a curated selection of limited edition prints by both leading contemporary and emerging artists. Each and every limited edition print is actually made exclusively for Bridgeman Editions by the artist then signed and are released in varied print runs, never exceeding 50. This ensures the rarity and collectibility of the piece making it all the more exciting when you purchase it.
Bridgeman Editions works collaboratively with a selection of leading contemporary and studio artists to produce limited edition prints and multiples. Through their highly curated approach, Bridgeman Editions strive to make collecting art more accessible to all levels.

Bridgeman Editions has no shortage of inspiring artists and one of our favourite right now has to be the talented Lucy Farley. Born in 1982 Lucy studied at Central St. Martins and graduated in 2005, before receiving an MA in printmaking from the Royal College of Art (2009), and if that wasn’t enough she recently completed a two-year Fellowship at the Royal Academy. Now living and working in both Cologne and London Lucy has exhibited internationally including the Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy, Multiplied at Christies, Art Berlin and Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy.
“Painting, drawing and printmaking are all part of my practice. I am interested in depicting places that I have a personal connection with or a history that inspires me.
My work aims to build up a record of time, spirit of place and changing feelings which occur through travel, my existence in the city and a connection with nature and the landscape.
The fragments of memory, past sensations and experiences, that are associated with a particular urban or natural landscape, form the basis of my work.”

“I am interested in the pictorial deconstruction and rearrangement of landscape, the figure and still life.
Seen and felt experiences, combined with repeated drawing and documentation, allow me to present the subject within a new context and explore the spirit of place, objects and the human condition in relation to this.
Through this reorganisation on paper and canvas, we as viewers experience a shift in perceived realities and question our mental and physical state within our immediate surroundings.”
– Lucy Farley.
