Exile by Lucas Weschke
Exile emerged over many months as a response to some of the emotional conflicts in the human condition. It confronts us with fundamental questions about the element of exile that exists in a relationship between parent and child.
Lucas makes bold block prints depicting people and animals in a landscape or visual context. His figurative subject matter explores themes that touch all of us. The work is characterised by clear lines, blocked shapes and flat colours, imparting an abstract quality and suggesting a less tangible landscape.
