The Neo-Luminist’s Vision: Steven DaLuz

10 Aug

The mixed media work of artist Steven DaLuz glows with an ethereal luminosity.  His atmospheric work explores the use of light to create ambience, whether it is a hazy and serene or deeply dramatic.

The self-described “Neo-Luminst” is creating work that is “concerned with the glowing effects of light”.  Instead of creating work with an inherent message or narrative, DaLuz instead prefers to let the emotionality of the light and color in his work allow the viewer to draw on their own perception and experience to invoke meaning.  Or to simply allow the imagery to speak for itself.

For me, these seem to be rare glimpses into another world.  These are transcendent, the light, texture and composition all joining together to transport the viewer into a world that may or may not exist within our realm of experience.

What one viewer may see as delicate and heavenly, another may view as foreboding and alien.  Or, like me, you may be drawn to the richness of color and elegance of the composition, which is enough to spark my own imagination.

      Glad you enjoyed them! They are awesome, aren’t they? So many meanings could be read into them.. or none at all.
