Lucinda Luvaas, a video artist and a painter, creating in allegory and harmony...
Updated: Jul 14
"My most recent film: Road 721 is 25 minutes long. To date, it’s been selected by 46 film festivals and has won awards for cinematography, editing, acting and others.
I wanted to invite you, the audience, to visit my new video i
nstallation of works done over the past two years. This video is 1 minute long, and it really gives a good sense of what I’m working on at present in a museum setting.
The world I create and want to live in is one where we harmonize with nature. Like such works as Edward Hick's, "The Peaceable Kingdom," and the Pre-Raphaelites, I want to depict a world where we embrace the oneness of all on our planet.
While at times I extoll and celebrate the natural world and our place in it, there are times when there is a touch of something foreboding.
My work is allegorical. These pieces represent something bigger--something we need to care about before we don't any longer have the opportunity to do so."
