Lucas Cann's body of work represents a microcosm of collective memory, visually encapsulating a broad range of cultural, literary, and philosophical allusions—from the Old Masters to the contemporary world
Born in the post-war time, grappling with the memories of his parents and family. Fusing art and literature, painting and sculpture, Cann engages the complex events of history and the ancestral epics of life, death, and the cosmos. His boundless repertoire of imagery is paralleled only by the breadth of media palpable in his work.
Cann’s oeuvre encompasses paintings, works on paper such as drawings, watercolors, dry needle prints and sculpture in stone and bronze. The physical elements of his practice from concrete to wax, and canvas to textiles are as symbolically resonant as they are vast-ranging.
By integrating, expanding, and regenerating imagery and techniques, he brings to light the importance of the sacred and spiritual, myth and memory.
Lucas Cann was born in 1959 in Ghent, Belgium. During a former life as designer, woodworker, antiques dealer and culinary assistant he kept creating art for more than 40 years. In the recent years he developed a personal style and professional flow and continuity in his work.
