Lucy Marion: Undergraduate Forum nominee

Lucy Marion
Artist Statement

"I find adaptation through mutation necessary and beautiful. I apply mutations to my work and exaggerate certain features to the point of uselessness and absurdity. The object changes from something familiar to a more responsive and strengthened form. My newer work contains the familiar aspects of a house, the shingles and bricks and wooden planks, but they are no longer useful as a dwelling."

Lucy Marion is an undergraduate artist from Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts.
She is from the Department of Craft and Material Studies, and was nominated by her department chair Sonya Clark to be part of this year's 1708 Gallery Invitational Forum.
