Throughout a career spanning three decades David Lucas has exhibited widely in public and private galleries, art fairs and 'alternative' exhibition spaces. His work has been met with critical acclaim and is held in many collections world wide. A broad interest in the natural world, astrophysics and philosophy inspires his outlook and approach. He attempts to unravel the experience of the moment from both external and internal points of view. The contemporary response to the world is to fragment it. Lucas explores the fragmentary. His creative process incorporates a superstructure and the accidental potential within it. The tension between controlling the image and allowing chance to play its part is essentially the subject and source of power in the work.
