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.

‘Lightshift’ , (115 x 84 x 3cm) is on display and available for acquisition from Cupola Gallery, from the 19th April 2024. Previously exhibited in ‘Horizons’ at Upfront Gallery in 2002, ‘New Paintings at Bloc Projects in 2003, and ‘The First Wigton Open Exhibition’ in 2011.

‘Solway no.4′(Shaft of Light series)107 x 169cm, oil on canvas, the latest addition to the series inspired by the unique beauty and character of the Solway Plain and surrounding area in north Cumbria, photographed recently on display in ‘Cornucopia’ a selected group exhibition at Cupola Contemporary Art . 

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 previous addition to the series. During the production of this body of work this painting emerged with a reference to the Solway plain where the artist spent his formative years.
