A contemporary visual artist, David Lucas draws inspiration from skies, land, sea, horizons, comets, space, rainbows, light and shadow. His visual language involves expressive gestural mark making and painterly abstraction, using intense colour, contour and shape.
‘Solway no.4′(Shaft of Light series) will be on display and available for acquisition from ‘Cornucopia’ a selected group exhibition at Cupola Contemporary Art from 18th November-6th January 2024.
He is presently working on the ‘Shaft of Light’ series, introducing a more pronounced geometric dimension to the work.
‘Shaft of Light no.11’, is the latest addition to the series. During the production of this body of work a new painting emerged with a connection to the Solway plain where the artist spent his formative years.
‘Solway no.1(Shaft of Light series)’, 107 x 169cm, oil on canvas is the first of a number of paintings inspired by the landscape of north Cumbria,
‘Shadow no.2’, was featured in ‘CUPOLA 30’, and several installation shots have been added to the images in the Installs section.
