Lucy Nelson

I am a final year MFA Fine Art student and visual artist. I join a material-driven practice with concerns around woman/nature stereotypes, disconnection from nature and the experience of maternal loss. I work predominantly with synthetic materials to create ambiguous sculptures. The medical specimen is often referenced through clinical staging whilst interweaving ideas of absence, growth, fragility and interrupted processes. I have exhibited work in Cambridge, Sheffield and various venues in Nottingham including the Nottingham Contemporary. During my studies I worked as a freelance studio assistant to New York based artist Dora Budor for her first UK show at Nottingham Contemporary. I am a featured artist for digital technology company Vieunite and also a member of Backlit studios. I am looking to take up artist residencies alongside other opportunities to develop my work further with a long-term goal to study for a PhD.
