Artist's Statement

Lucas Simões is an artist graduated in Architecture and Urbanism. His experience as an architect redefined is perceptions of art and opened new paths of discovery. In architecture, he says, ‘a drawing is more than a drawing: it is the intent that something concrete will materialize through the construction process ’. This outlook has influenced his drawing process and his constructive approach to his work with sculpture and site specific. In his proposals is to intervene in spaces that carry multiple meanings, and so to create new Spatiality that oscillates between beauty and strangeness, movement and depth. ’There is a kind of perversion in it, to take the meaning out of place,’ he says. ‘Strangeness is something that fascinates me, and to make it beautiful is even better.’
