Public Art - Emil Lukas at Seven

Press Coverage

BravinLee exhibited "Skin", a large scale, site-specific sculpture installation by Emil Lukas at SEVEN New York 2012. Emil Lukas' work straddles painting and sculpture. Working with and exploiting simple materials in unconventional ways, Lukas' work is like a forensic investigation. The aesthetic character of the art object is the byproduct of the artist's working process seeking to reveal the evidence of the material's essential nature. For The Boiler Seven at Seven project, Lukas employed a simple, haiku like process and transform a fundamental feature of the existing Boiler space and alter its distinctive character. He will preserve much of the original form and volume, of the space while obscuring and obliterating details of its recognizable aspects.
