Belgium - Stone - Theme: petrified messages & encapsulated women
Free the petrified messages or statues of women from their old stone shells
With an innate awareness of the beauty of nature, Luk Luts "gets to the bottom" of the various types of stone.
He uses as well Mergel-sandstone, as
Diestianian iron-sandstone, French stones, Belgian and Irish bluestone, the beautiful but delicate Noir de Mazy, the unique Italian marble 'Bianco Statuario' and the colourful Zimbabwean Opaal and
To clarify the fossilised message from the "in print" in the stone mass or to liberate female statues from their centuries-old stone husk is his obsession.
Luk Luts evolved from a school-teacher to a stone-teacher. Not only because he understands and feels the stone better and better, but also because he shows us in his personal style what he sees in a stone. Once you have felt his work, you will always recognise it.
