The Garment As Canvas was a celebration of creativity between painting, fashion and the everyday. The source materials for this exhibition ranged from a 1970s Dior campaign to today’s Vogue content.
In his London studio, Luc works with layers of paint and mixed media on canvas as an expression of pure energy and human spirituality.
His practice evokes the jazz-age concerns of improvisation and visual syncopation, incorporating symbolism from the streets, the everyday and the fashion industry to dramatically re-imagine the images w see every day and, as such, take for granted.
His style has evolved from his roots in Street Art and Pop Art to his more recent love and respect for the ideas and style of Abstract Expressionism and European Modernism.
This exhibition of paintings and one off painted garments illustrated Waring’s journey as a professional artist, both stylistically and conceptually.
