swarm

A close friend and former studio-mate, Emil Lukas, produces works in a variety of non-traditional materials.  In a series called, “Larva Paintings”, he places inked-soaked maggots on a canvas where the larva leave trails as they meander and writhe.  The series is hauntingly beautiful and mysteriously captivating.  Emil’s work is currently on view at Sperone Westwater Gallery in New York City.

  1. That is so interesting…. sounds like you could have a lot of fun and adventure with that also…… I like the different strength in lines that the maggots have created.

  2. Cool! We use to do that with snails at paint at my kids’ school…fun!
