About

This piece is an abstract starburst pattern done on tar paper. this is not signed and dated but it came in with another two pieces by him, one of which is on the website of the Pollock Krasner foundation. It came with a photocopy of a letter from a classmate of his at university (in the 1950s) who purchased them from him in the 1990s on a studio visit. Born in Riga, Latvia in 1934, Sven Lukin immigrated to the United States in 1949. Lukin enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Architecture. where he attended lectures by the influential architect and urban designer Louis I. Kahn. Kahn's ideas had a profound impact on the young artist. In 1958, Lukin moved to New York to pursue his career as a painter. During the 1960s, he had solo exhibitions at many of New York's most influential and prestigious galleries, including: Betty Parsons Gallery, Martha Jackson Gallery, and the Pace Gallery. During this period, his work also figured prominently in many landmark museum exhibitions, such as The Quest and the Quarry (Rome-New Art Foundation), Vormen van de Kleur (Stedelijk Museum), The Shaped Canvas ( Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum), Color, Image, and Form ( Detroit Institute of Arts), and L'art vivant aux États-Unis (Fondation Maeght), among others. in 1964 he was included in The Shaped Canvas, an exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, curated by influential critic Lawrence Alloway with works by Paul Feeley, Sven Lukin, Richard Smith, Frank Stella, and Neil Williams. In 1979, Jeanne Siegel curated an exhibition at the Visual Arts Museum, Shaped Paintings which featured Kenneth Noland and Ellsworth Kelly, along with Charles Hinman, Sven Lukin, Robert Mangold, Bernar Venet, Tom Wesselmann and Neil Williams. Lukin has collapsed aspects of Minimalism, Arte Povera, and primitive art while also reminding us that the visible and the hidden are always in dialogue. For even if, as Frank Stella famously said, “What you see is what you see,” that doesn’t mean you see everything. SELECTED MUSEUM COLLECTIONS: Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York Solomon R.
