As an artist, technician and curator, Luke’s interdisciplinary work looks to explore and understand the world through curiosity and a commitment to social mobility. These inquiries are formalised across multiple and unlimited forms.
He is part of the ‘generation of creators’ who Holden (2015) suggests are ‘omnivorous in their approach […] moving ideas from one part of culture to another’. This generation have had their horizons broadened in the past few decades by those who have changed the definition of what it means to be an artist-curator, how and where they operate.
Academic work is centred around ‘Curating Research’ (Progressive Research Communication) – a curatorial dream which looks to revolutionise the way research is presented and consumed.
Luke’s Living Legacies and Court Painter portraiture have been the subject of shows at Bristol’s newest and oldest major art galleries.
