LENA ARICE LUCAS Artist Statement: “My abstract paintings strive to express the spiritual challenges one faces – and transcends – while traveling through life toward the ultimate goal of realizing one’s full potential as soul. As personal journeys and life’s challenges take place via life experiences in the physical realm, so does a parallel inner movement and growth toward ‘cosmic consciousness’ take place within spiritual realms. Those inner travels are represented by my abstract paintings. I also paint naturalistic subjects as a form of meditation. My abstract clay sculptures can serve as solid symbols of that same spiritual concept described above, or can deal with relationships between two souls, and how they assist one another in life. I enjoy sculpting naturalistic subjects, too. I think of my wheel-thrown and hand-built pottery vessels as possessing a ceremonial energy. Inspired by – though quite different from – ancient Chinese bronze vessels I saw as a young woman. My hand-built ones make me imagine a sacred purpose they may be intended for. The more structured wheel-thrown jars have automatic writing of symbols on the surfaces that I imagine as a narration or description of what is contained within. My combined wheel-thrown pottery and hand-built clay vessels often use imagery from my abstract paintings on the surfaces, with meaning intermingled, also.” SELECTED ART EXHIBITIONS AND COMMISSIONS      SELECTED GROUP EXHIBITS 2013-2011    Bryant Gallery, wo
