Stewart Lucas is a Manhattan-based painter whose abstract works reference architectural and machine-age design from the early twentieth century. The two-dimensional works created in oil reveal complex structures in their simplest form.
Conversely, the love of objects rendered 'alla prima' style walk the line between painterly realism and abstraction. Maintaining an emphasis on accurate drawing, values, and color, he aspires to capture his subject honestly while articulating its emotional impact.
Artistic diversions include scenic design, prop fabrication, and objet d'art commissioned by prestige retailers and collectors.
