Nicholas Lucius’s experimental paintings, print installations, and digital collages incorporate elements traditionally used in conceptual and new media art. Heavily influenced from the surrealist, his Large-scale paintings often start out with an idea that is drawn up or painted using acrylic or water soluble oil paints. The piece is then scanned into Photoshop to be digitally altered or reinvented. Once the piece is perfected, it is printed on canvas using inkjet technology. The artwork is then transformed with an abundance of mixed media (Oil, acrylic, watercolor, embellishments, collage, ETC) to create a hybrid of work that not only combines technology with organic material, but loudly rejects old artistic structures, while still delivering culture driven pieces that create an oeuvre that is witty, compelling and autonomous in the avant-garde.
