Lucy Beecher Nelson

Rituals & Routines

Drawing from patterns around her house, Lucy Beecher Nelson delves into the daily rhythms of married life. Originating with an apron from her great-grandmother, Lucy’s use of textile patterns plays with gender roles and legacies handed down from previous generations. Contrasting hard and soft, straight edges and curved lines, shapes and linear perspective expand and contract around the figures. Patterns written on the skin both define and camouflage the faces. She navigates her own role as mother, wife, daughter, sister, and teacher, and the negotiations of those expectations.

Lucy Beecher Nelson is based in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Please contact us for more information.
