Lucas van Eeghen
Prof. Daniele Radini Tedeschi, the curator of the Triennale di arte visive a Roma, declared the Dutch artist, and Leonardo award winner, Lucas van Eeghen, to be one of the heralds of the new movement of this millenium, Tiltestetica (also known as Estetica Paradisiaca, Editoria Giorgio Mandadori 2014, ISBN 978-88-6052-549-9)): 'As an artist-seer of today Lucas van Eeghen sets course to evoke a vocabulary of archetypes and iconographic models. (..) He builds the surface of the canvas literally of leaves, foliage and stems in order to frame his new works. He is the great protagonist of the nature infiltrating the visual arts. The ruins of postmodernism are put into a new key. That works cathartic. His approach is synthetic and simultaneously baroque. But although Van Eeghen is on the one hand moving in the direction of Futurism, he owns on the other hand, an extreme individuality that connects him in the art of painting - the old craftsmanship - with Ferdinand Khnopff and even Vermeer.'
