Lucas Seaward »»

My aim is to create a composition that goes far beyond the canvas surface. If a picture is worth a thousand words, it is my goal to create art that will evoke emotions and stimulate conversation. Inspired by the natural world, I utilize the black, oily, viscous material bitumen as juxtaposition in the creation of my art. In recent work, I am pairing the opposite extremes of industrial development with wildlife’s inherent beauty. I am seeking poetic metaphors that convey how human ingenuity in the oil sands can symbolically imitate complex biological occurrences in nature.

Contemporary Oil Sands

Seaward’s striking contemporary oil sand panels explore the relationship between perception and opinion, incorporating a variety of materials from ink on paper to textured rich oil sands encapsulated in glass-like resin. These intriguing pieces seamlessly fuse macro photography with raw naturally occurring oil sands in an aim to expand upon one’s awareness of Alberta’s most controversially utilized resource formulating it beyond its utilitarian history and social dogma. Seaward has a deep reverence for imagery, which combined with his meticulous approach, allows the viewer to surmise and discover the allegorical through natural form, offering an opportunity to break with the past to see anew.
