INTERVIEW: ALAN LACKE CAIRO

Interviews | September 4, 2020

My art is based on scientific information, mathematical laws, cosmic energies and history. I use the simplest elements to represent my ideas, so the most basic forms and above all color are essential in my works. A previous study of the line and gesture is paramount as ways to find that harmony that represents order in the universe and color as an instrument to convey sensations to those who contemplate my paintings. There is always a search for the essential in my work, of the spirit of the things, of what is beyond the surface, of the visible. I try to bring the viewer to a silent contemplation that conveys to him an almost mystical sense of seeing the world. It is therefore an abstract painting in which the spontaneous, safe and free expression of the artist’s gesture when painting is of fundamental importance. But without ever neglecting a previous detailed study of the pictorial exercise and the final composition. Read more
