Mary-Margaret Lucas

Franklin, Tennessee / Knoxville, Tennessee 


My work is about navigating and claiming my identity as an identical twin. I have sought independence for so long and now that I finally have it, I question my initial desire for it. This is uncomfortable and only through the act of making can I negotiate the emotional and physical space between my reciprocal and myself. There is a push and pull between packing away personal histories and exposing them at the same time. Only by making the scale of the works approximate the body do they become large enough and strong enough to contain my complex sentiment.
