Lucas has progressed from recording the landscape to a more subjective interpretative art which has allowed for a greater emotional and philosophical response to painting. Light, shafts of brightness are put into the work but his interest in the deeper aspects of infinity has widened the vision. He attempts to unravel the experience of the moment from both external and internal points of view. The contemporary response to the world is to fragment it. Lucas explores the fragmentary. His creative process incorporates a superstructure and the accidental potential within it.
