Lucas van Eeghen is a visual artist from Amsterdam. The 3D recent paintings in mixed media are unique in its sort. The images are picked out of the air like songs, seemingly coming from nowhere. Subsequently they develop according to what the materials and paint offer themselves. They are made of a combination of realistic stuff gathered from nature or objects, These are highly manipulated and placed on a canvas in a painted setting. See video. The paintings invite to touch. They pose questions like what is it made of and how long does it last? Are all things of true value fragile and defenseless? The imagery opens a soft world of floating intuition. The poetry of toujours l´amour et la mort. And the hope that keeps us alive.
Paintings have been exhibited a.o. in Galery Siau, Arti & Amicitiae, Nieuwe Kerk, Beurs van Berlage, Vondelkerk, Centrum Bellevue, Royal Palace at the Dam, Alexander F. Milliken Gallery (NY), NTG Gent, popup galery kerkstraat 276.
