Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 19, 2014
The Fort Lauderdale Home Design and Remodeling Show will celebrate art and its place in the home with a special exhibit within this year’s event. The Artist Encounter at the Home Show will present the work of Lena Luckey, a contemporary/abstract artist who resides and works in Fort Lauderdale. A collection of her work will be on display at the Home Show, May 30-June 1, 2014 at the Broward County Convention Center.
Lena Luckey is a native of Prague, Czech Republic and has traveled the world to cultivate and develop her art. Based first in Munich, Germany, she journeyed throughout Europe, spending time in the pastoral countryside and most of the major metropolitan cities in Western Europe. While on the Mediterranean peninsula of St. Tropez, the French art and coastal inhabitants inspired her to paint.
Luckey’s desire to experience and immerse herself completely in other cultures led her south to Casablanca, Morocco. Morocco’s rich historical culture incorporates the best of Arab, Spanish, Portuguese and French art. While in Casablanca, she absorbed the spirit, flavors and textures of these influences and naturally infused them into her work.
Intrigued by how her soul was identifying with a wide variety of nationalities and cultures, Luckey next set her sights on the island of Bali, Indonesia. The time spent in Bali's spiritually rich environment culminated in a fusion of all her experiences. Her artwork reveals textures and colors that bridge several continents and many diverse cultures. Luckey uses the artistic medium of acrylic on canvas to depict her personal experiences with people, places, and emotions. To give texture to some of her work she uses beach sand, saw dust, grass or soil on the canvas to produce a truly unique and emotive creation from her soul.
Lena's inspired expression has brought international recognition, collector’s attention, and juried awards to her portfolio. Lena’s devotion to the human spirit leads her to diverse involvements with charitable causes across the face of the planet. Lena’s artworks have been acquired by notable persons in entertainment, sports, and business, and by U.S. and international collectors. Her works have won acclaim and awards internationally, and are exhibited in galleries in the U.S. and Europe.
