Her work is held in public and private collections in the UK and abroad including Tate Britain, Yale Center for British Art, Chelsea College of Art, Manchester Metropolitan University and the State Library of Queensland.

There was a time in which soldiers, having had a prolonged absence from home, were thought to suffer and sometimes die of ‘Nostalgia’. This malaise later became known as homesickness. During WWII Russian soldiers sent triangular correspondence to their loved ones. In these письма-треугольники, the letter and envelope were one, allowing censors to access and omit any sensitive material without compromising the structure. The simple design meant the content and address never became separated and made the letters easily identifiable as priority mail to the postal service. This work comprises two triangular letters, to be read individually - one as an edited letter home and the other as a stream of consciousness yearning, or overlaid and read as one, flitting between the sentiments of the head and the heart. Letterpress printed 1st edition of 40 printed (the first 10 are a boxed edition housed within a bespoke clamshell box with mascara stained handkerchief inkjet printed linings and special edition triangular letter). Printed with gold and copper ink on found paper, tracing paper and Rives Arches on a Heidleburg Platten Press.

Belongings
Lucy May Schofield & Sylvia Waltering

Individual contributors were selected and approached with the simple request to provide the artists with an object that had a special story or memory attached. They were asked to record that story, yet not reveal it. The artists used the loaned objects as muse and stimulation for their writing to unfold, creating new narrative potential.
The artists publication contains photographs of the belongings and the writings they inspired.
