Emily Brett Lukens says....

My work is about texture. I use resources from nature to create rubbings on thin papers. I use these images to collage and paint mixed media works that represent close-up and far away views of the earth. In my work, time is an element, and I am interested in reconfiguring the ancient, bringing it into a contemporary context.

My work often reflects my Midwest upbringing, where the view is flat land, and travel from one location to another allows the viewer time to study the patterns of the landscape.
