Dungog Contemporary Presents - Luciana Smith

Luch 8 for website.jpgdungog contemporary

Luciana Smith is a Sydney-based artist who graduated from UNSW Art & Design in 2015.

Luciana draws from her own observations and a range of references from the internet and art history, twisting her subjects into a world that exists somewhere between reality and the imagination. Luciana’s work is a collection of strange, anonymous portraits of people and mundane places.

Her recent body of work recontextualises scenes to offer new perspectives; it is a contemplation of the time we live in. Luciana reanimates her surroundings with bold colour as a way of analysing quotidian behaviours and environments.

The paintings are a collection of opportunistic snapshots. Luciana captures candid subjects in fleeting moments, finding humour in day-to-day life, and in looking at people and our settings in a skewed way.
