David Luksha

The pieces contained in this new suite of work are the result of my ongoing interest in how vision is changed from "seeing" to "looking", by the point of view or the position one takes. Alternating areas of intense colour, texture and sheen with areas of clear wax provides the context in which the work is viewed. This resultant modernist format is combined with current and historical paint applications.


The viscosity of the paint and methods of application now play a more significant role, both physically and conceptually. Whereas in previous work coloured glazing and clean layers of wax were applied in varying degrees as an attempt to solidify the visual field, the final overcoats of coloured glaze and more opaque mixes have now been applied as attempt to control the visual field.
