His recent work is inspired by pictures of his past en the human limitations. In his latest series he restricts his subjects by immobilizing some of their limbs into transparent boxes or covering them in materials. This way, he wants to experience the viewer with the limitations of contemporary man. The limitations of thought, seeing, walking, feeling, smelling and experience. His goal is to inspire the viewer to create their own story by watching his work.
Since some time he involves printing techniques within his daily work. And as he says himself, „these are my most honest works were every mistake can be fatal”. He uses his print-work as study material for large scale paintings and settings.
Lucas Cann (1959) lives and works in Destelbergen (Belgium). He exhibits his work in numerous of prominent art fairs such as, Art Breda, Cologne Fine Art, BAD (Belgium Art and Design), ACAF Brussels BOZAR, Spring Art fair Brussels and other events national and International.

REVISITING THE MASTERS SERIES
CLUSTERS OF WHO WE WERE SERIES
A new series of paintings inspired by the dreamworld of the human mind. The artist tried to capture the visionary world of dreams and human thoughts. As dream images frequently appear in clusters, he decided to separate his images from each other rather than to present them in one undivided picture. His ultimate goal is, to let the objects of his painting escape from there canvases like dreams without borders.
