A

bstraction has always been a main focus for Ien Lucas, who considers her practice an ongoing journey as she composes sumptuous configurations of paint on canvas taking inspiration from the infinite possibilities of experimentation. Through the exploration of the boundaries of painting, Lucas’ work extends from the edges of flat surfaces as she incorporates three dimensional elements; playing with touch and texture through the application and subtraction of colour. The mix of mediums, compositions,

colour and space all come together without any reference to reality, allowing the viewer to find their own direction when considering each piece individually. Lucas is based in the Netherlands, where alongside regular exhibitions her works can be found in the collection of the Bonnefanten Museum in Maastricht, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of the Interior, ABP, AKZO NOBEL and DSM, and at many companies in the Netherlands and abroad. ienlucas.nl ienlucas@planet.nl
