Massachusetts artist Luke O'Sullivan creates amazing sculptural forms - buildings, cityscapes, individual objects - that often cause the viewer to associate with the scenery for a fun children's game.
As the author himself admits, architectural identity and urban life give him inspiration and have remained the main themes of his work for seven years now. To create his works, Luke paints wooden elements using screen printing, and after that he collects three-dimensional objects from them - most often these are individual houses or cityscapes. The author often places his works on original pedestals, collected from the so-called found objects: construction waste, old water taps and wires.
“Recycling and demolition are similar processes that give materials the opportunity to find a second life,” says Luke O'Sullivan. "The use of architectural shards in my work illustrates the temporal nature of industrial materials and carries historical characteristics that broaden the narrative elements in the work." On the other hand, the author notes that the “architectural fragments” in his works are also a reminder of the ever-increasing amount of industrial waste.
Luke O'Sullivan was born in 1984 in Jamaica Plain (Massachusetts, USA). Studied at the Art Institute of Boston (Boston) and the Rhode Island School of Design (Providence). Exhibitions of his work are held throughout the United States. More works of the author are on his official website.
