criss-crossed thread is stretched over box-like forms. accumulating, the colored lines create glowing fields. complex color fields shimmer and shift as ambient light changes.
they refer to looms and weaving, stringed musical instruments, netting, spiders’ webs. complex “cat’s cradle” works are both sculptures and paintings.
“paintings” made without paint. “drawings” made with thread.
these paintings will be part of a solo show of emil lukas’ work at our san francisco gallery that will open may 21st.
