Lucas Ferreira‘s works are made from small hand crafted fragments of ceramic. Small flat rectangles are joined together to form a circle. Each fragment, the same size and shape, one next to the other, almost sewn together, accumulated to form sequences, rhythms, which are then altered by the inclusion of black pieces.
Repetition, sequence, order and interruption convey the method by which the fragments are meticulously arranged creating geometric and abstract shapes. Some of the works appear at the same time in a series, where the alteration of the black pieces marks different spaces and rhythm in the compositions. The work is subtle, intriguing. Only a closer look will offer the viewer a rendition of what it is about. “My work is inspired by geological formations. I enjoy crafting minimalist textured studies inspired by how rocky surfaces are reshaped over time.”
Lucas studied Film Production in the London College of Communication. He learnt ceramics by assisting his mother, the ceramic artist Valeria Nascimento in her studio. Lucas has shown in galleries in the UK and abroad and recently joined jaggedart.
