Lucy Bone's The Velvet Ditch

 

This lush and deeply personal exhibition draws from Bone’s own life experience, having grown up in the contemporary South.

In this series of photographs, she explores situations from her childhood, and the associated feelings of nostalgia for the simplicity of both real and imagined spaces, while confronting the inevitable growing pains of impending adulthood. 

Bone compares the tension in this series to the dichotomy depicted in French painter Nicholas Poussin’s famous piece Et Tu en Arcadia, which translates to “Even in Arcadia, there I am.” Arcadia, a mythological utopia, home to the Greek god Pan, is described as an unspoiled, harmonious wilderness.

Utilizing her struggle for clarity and simplicity, in a time of life where that can be difficult (if not impossible) to find, Bone has given visual context to the idea of The Velvet Ditch, which is a comfortable place that is difficult to crawl out of, and, at times, tempting to remain in. Surrounded by the color green and armed with a camera, Bone works to confront her future while reconciling an idyllic and Arcadic past.
