HOW DID I GET HERE? | LUCAS MARTELL | 18 FEBRUARY 2017 – 18 MARCH 2017

It starts when I recall in detail how an object appeared to me a week ago. Now, mix that with water, adding memories of contours, silhouettes, and lighting. Freeze it. From that recollection I create two scenarios: throw one in hot water and photograph it; throw the other into a blue sky and remember it. These memorized pictures and fantastical scenarios influence the imagery in my work. Derived from a tug-o-war between retrospective sights and current observations—moving from one place to another. Constantly flowing imagery is interrupted by paint viscosity, which later synthesizes or suspends my thought, like a still frame, accentuating its details. I forcefully manipulate the medium like a balancing act, and the original structure of an object is recaptured in a matter of seconds. – Lucas Martell
