Wayne Lucas’ practice blurs the activities of painting and sculpture: restless and obsessive accretions of materials, often sourced from secondhand markets, build objects where feral surfaces crawl over and morph into un-nameable forms. The result is a provocation that filters remnants of personal experience into playful assemblages that question normative oppositions like body and mind, image and object.

Born in 1965, Wayne Lucas studied at Middlesex Polytechnic, London, and L’Ecole de Beaux Arts, Poitiers France, graduating in 1989. Since then he has lived and worked in Rome, Italy, and Holland, and is now based in London.
