Michael Lucero: Sculpture 1976-1995
Lucero is both an artist and an educator, one who creates intricate, multidimensional work. There is a synthesis of diverse forms and influences that broach many issues involving the appropriation and assimilation of primitive or ethnic culture in modern art. Multiculturalism is a theme, along with a strong adherence to the arts and crafts tradition. Michael Lucero has developed a personal comprehensive discourse utilizing human and animal imagery that explores the contrasts between nature, culture, and the sub-conscious influence of art history and popular ephemera. This edition contains 47 of Lucero’s glazed ceramic, bronze, and mixed-media sculpture. Author Bloemink explores the references to surrealism and Dada, noting the highly detailed layers of iconography that comprise Lucero’s work.
