Welcome to Karis Art Gallery
Meet artist Sol Luckman, April 12th, 5:30 - 8:00pm
Karis Art Gallery is proud to present the work of Sol Luckman.
Sol is an accomplished prolific Lowcountry artist whose work has been featured on the covers of several
bestselling books, Sol Luckman has a fascination with what he calls “surfacing.”
This term, as it plays out in Luckman’s expressionistic and experimental paintings, can refer to many things
of a universally human nature: rebirth, leaving the nest, taking a risk, rising above.
Surfacing can also be taken at face value. In Luckman’s paintings creatures and objects fly, sun and moons rise, waves swell. Here a mysterious figure surfaces from underwater; there another boldly rides the surf.
Last but not least, surfacing refers to the literal surfaces of Luckman’s intricately patterned and highly textured paintings. Whether working with brush and ink, painting knife and acrylic or another technique, Luckman’s
primary goal is to render a lively surface that invites a deeper look at what else of intrigue might be surfacing.
Opening reception from 5:30 - 8:00pm - April 12th
Exhibit runs April 1 - 30th
