Luc is an award-winning sculptor with an M.F.A. from the University of California in Sculpture and Intaglio Printmaking with additional studies in Art and Architecture in Belgium, England, France, and Italy through the Intur Kultur Off-Campus Program.
Luc has an extensive background in metal fabrication and bronze casting. His sculptures are collected widely both privately and publicly and are in galleries across the country.
Recent awards include First Place in Sculpture at VRMC's National Juried Exhibit/Harrisonburg, VA., First Place in Sculpture at the 89th Annual International Exhibition of Fine Art in Miniature/ Bethesda, MD.
While residing in Seattle in the 90’s, Luc started his business Elf Foundry and Fabrication. He also helped design and build the Cleveland High School Foundry for the South East Seattle Arts Council in Seattle and was widely sought for exhibits in the area. Luc has taught sculpture at all levels of academia from elementary through college.
Recent works reference his interests in physics, and theories on subatomic particles, light waves, and magnetic and gravitational fields. Materials and forms within the compositions are either found in nature or have man-made connotations. By combining these suggestive forms with his studies and interests in science he creates a metaphysical world, where scale and proportion focus, as well as confuse our perception of a given reality.
His vision is realized through various mediums and materials such as: etching and collagraph printmaking, stone and wood carving, metal forging, foundry, and fabrication methods. Witness of process is also an integral part of the complete aesthetic. Tooling and hammer marks, flashes and splashes associated with foundry work, or saw and carving marks may be left on the individual elements.
From studio to finished piece, the sculptures go through many changes (original ideas remaining intact).
“It is the spontaneous decisions and changes during the developmental stages that make work exciting, and for what I believe to be an entertaining and meditative art piece”.
Luc works out of his studio and foundry in Unionville, Maryland which was featured on the “7 on 75 Studio Tour,” and he is a member of the TAG Gallery in Frederick, Maryland, and is represented by Zenith Gallery in Washington, D.C., and Chestnut Hill Gallery in Philadelphia, PA.
