Adam Lucas aka Hanksy
"Left vs. Right"

2017

About

The work within Adam’s new work is a stark pivot for the artist, whose aesthetic is primarily defined by image making that relies heavily on wordplay, kitsch and references to pop-culture. The aesthetic that Lucas is exploring now-blunt, forthright and flat-is less rooted in pop and a nod to the synthetic Cubists; however adjusted to express the distinctive urban street life and existing culture in America. While the shift from Hanksy to Lucas may at first appear drastic, there are connective strains that unify both artistic identities, namely the interplay between visual pleasure and deeper themes. Hanksy, on the one hand, relies on humor and the “already-seen” aspect of his pop-culture icons to encourage viewers to consider the lust with which we consume celebrity. Lucas, on the other hand, presents bright colors, with rhythmic beats and opportunity for visual play to initially seduce viewers; however, upon lengthier look, his paintings are also couched in weightier, trenchant themes. Adam notes, “The last five years have been fun and full of pun, but things are slightly different now. My day-to-day is changing quite a bit and the current administration is a damn tire fire. The work I’d like to create right now makes more sense without the Hanksy label.”
