InLiquid presents an exhibition of new works by artist member Emily Brett Lukens. Emily Brett Lukens uses resources from nature to create drawings and paintings that represent close-up and far away views of the earth. Her work often reflects her Midwest upbringing, where the view is flat and travel from one location to another allows the viewer time to study the patterns of the landscape. Her non-representational images are layers of texture-combining acrylic paint, oil stick and collage mediums-creating tension and unique patterns. The images appear when the color resonates through the layered surfaces, making them glow.
