The Gallery @ Artisan Square will be showing the work of David Luksha in an exhibition entitled Avert Convert Subvert, April 1 to April 24.
David Luksha has shown his work extensively throughout Canada, as well as in Belgium and New York.
All the paintings are created using oil, glazing and wax. The paint and wax are applied and altered in various ways - brushing, pouring, melting and torching. Both opaque and transparent paint are used. The finished image contains material that may be embedded or suspended in wax or that lies on the surface, each layer of material affecting the others.
Luksha says, "The resultant images, formed by what is on the surface, in the surface and beneath the surface, are meant to trace visual memory, devoid of or refusing mimetic form."
These paintings are the product of a personal exploration of ideas and materials, "a natural consequence of the process followed, not an adherence to modernistic concepts surrounding non-objective ainting."
The artist reception will be held on Sunday, April 3 from 2 to 4 p.m.
Gallery hours are Friday to Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.
